Karen didn’t just lose inventory. She didn’t just lose her livelihood. She lost her life’s work and the tools of her trade, but Karen was stronger than all of that, and at the age of 73 she rose from the ashes like a Phoenix and built herself a new studio, completely on her own, and in the center of her living room.
