In Progress Shot

Hand-layering the different decal pieces for Peapods. First, the white goes on the forest green and then the forest green dots go on the white. I'm trying my best to make sure that each peapod looks the same:) Next on, transfer taping...

BCD/Karen Steen Collaboration - Spring

Our first collaboration with artist, Karen Steen resulting in a whimsical and playful design:) Spring is currently only available at our Etsy store and comes in over 20 colour choices!

Check out Spring by Karen Steen here.

Artist Biography:

Karen Steen, a native of Southern California, moved to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in 2005. She completed her MFA at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia in May 2007 and has a studio at Bethlehem’s Banana Factory. Steen began her career as a commercial artist, working as an editorial illustrator for magazines such as Modern Maturity, Disney Channel, Westways, and Shape. She has bachelors degrees in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California earned in 1988 and in Business from Colorado College, in Colorado Springs, Colorado earned in 1978.

Karen’s artistic life includes her commitment to art education. She believes there is a freedom in art that doesn’t exist in other endeavors. “If children learn to use and be comfortable with that freedom, we will have a richer, more flexible and creative society. The empowerment that comes with becoming a creative problem-solver will help young people in whatever they choose to pursue in life,” she says. This belief inspired Karen to found a volunteer run art program at her childrens’ elementary school in her hometown, South Pasadena, California. She currently teaches in the B-Smart and Holy Infancy programs at the Banana Factory, and in after school workshops at Saucon Valley Elementary School, in Hellertown, PA.
