Welcome to the design studio of Karen Burton – a studio that creates colorful, uplifting designs to brighten your life.

Surface Patterns

Fresh, colorful and modern yet timeless designs ranging from whimsical to graphic to sophisticated – suitable for products such as home décor, wallpaper, rugs, fashion, bolt fabrics, stationery and giftwrap.



Striking traditional and digital illustration features a fluid drawing style combined with rich color and a variety of subject matter. My “Favorite Things” series on Instagram focuses on flowers, food, nature and everyday objects.


I photograph the ever-changing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from my home and studio in Virginia. I try to capture the feelings and moods this special place evokes through the seasons and share them with others.
