Karen trained and worked as a secondary English teacher, but looked for part time office work after having a family, and retrained as a bookkeeper. She has found her niche working in not-for-profit arts organisations since 2003, and at Spare Parts since 2014.
Spare Parts Puppet Theatre respectfully acknowledges the Whadjuk Noongar people as the traditional owners and custodians of the unceded land on which we work. As we tour our work across these vast lands, we pay our respect to all First Nations elders, past and present. We celebrate their continuing connection and contribution to culture, country and community, and thank all First Nations peoples for their wisdom in caring for the land, the sky, the rivers and the sea.
