Karen Batten uses a distinct process, involving consultation and collaboration in developing creative products. This process places clients and service users at the centre of the creative process through dialogue, workshops and training which is applicable to a range of clients including individuals, organisations and businesses. Karen creates opportunities for the service users, members and staff to be involved in the creative process, where-ever the interest lies. This process of greater consultation and collaboration has proven to not only yield greater results, but also creates a climate of creativity within organisations, ensures client’s ideas are utilised and fosters a sense of creative ownership over the final product. Karen weaves evaluation and reflection into every project to continuously improve the process.

All artwork created is owned by the client. Karen can provide training for workers to edit the designs created to save resources for future projects.
