Winter Wonders Artisan Profile - Spineless aka Karen Polowick

Something very exciting we're happy to introduce at the Winter Wonders Handmade Market is SPINELESS, handmade books!


*handmade sketchbooks, journals, photo albums, and other miscellany*

Karen earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Saskatchewan where she focused on painting, drawing and photography. It was in one of her photography classes where Karen first learned about the process of hand-binding books, and she has been exploring new styles and combinations ever since. She lives and works in Saskatoon, where by day she is a picture framer and by night she enjoys cutting, gluing and sewing things together.

Combining mostly found and second-hand materials with various other cultural ephemerae, Karen makes things you can use!
