Karen Gillis (1953) is a Dutch artist working in different disciplines. In 2006 she started designing jewelry.
She has many years of experience as a painter, designer, photographer, photoshop-artist. She has a degree in textile art and fine art. This knowledge contributes to her current designs, but life itself is the greatest contribution. Atmosphere, coincidence, experiments and unusual combinations of materials are guiding her in creating her designs.
For many years (2009-2019) her jewelry collection was made out of loop pins and she created intricate organic structures. Most of her jewelry designs are one of a kind or made in a very limited edition.
