About the artist: Karen Klinkfrom Spain
Karen Klink was successfully born in Beirut. She developed an early interest in collecting happy meal toys, enjoying great Lebanese food, and inventing bedtime horror stories to scare herself and her little cousins at night. To give shape to these fascinations, Klink decided one day to become an illustrator.
Why this work
