Artisan Bio


After a lifetime of being a part-time crafter, Karen decided to make creating her full time profession.  Two years ago she started her current business, Salvaged and Refreshed.  Karen says, “The most satisfying part of Salvaged and Refreshed is sharing my experiences with others.  Whether it is with their salvaged piece of furniture or a cherished heirloom.”  She is now bringing her skills and experience into a class environment where she can help others learn and grow in a craft that she is so passionate about
