Karen's Kids Studio - Our Story

Our Story
Karen first began drawing kids to decorate her classrooms. The kids were officially born in 1987 when she created three clip art sets. Since then thousands of images, products and 3 children’s picture books have been created. These amusing little characters have continued to grow in popularity. They stand for helping and serving and taking care of each other. Today Karen devotes her time to illustrating and creating new ideas and working on projects that support a creative, safe and character-building environment for children. According to one customer, their "...timeless and universal appeal warms the hearts of adults and children today and will endure and enchant for years to come...".

Karen's Kids Studio - About Karen Frandsen

I was born on a farm in North Dakota and moved to California at age 2. I grew up in a family with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. What is important to me? My family, friends, kids, drawing, creating, Saturday morning cartoons, green tea and a faith in a God who loves us unconditionally. My love for children and teaching were a perfect match. The runny noses, untied shoes, giggles, silly words, tears, sticky fingers, band-aids, talking animals and monsters in the closet became part of Karen’s Kids and their story. The reason Karen’s Kids Motto is '...sharing, caring and working together, helping to make the world a better place' is because, as Alfred A. Peterson wrote, "Our children are watching us live, and what we ARE shouts louder than anything we say."
