Karen Hart

Kardia (Karen Hart) of Denver, CO was raised in suburban Ohio and worked in an electronic assembly factory for 14 years. She reluctantly accepted a medical disability retirement a few months after being diagnosed with CFS, Fibromyalgia and Depression. She invests her rare good hours in various Arts, Jewelry Making and Crafts. And enjoys spending her many resting hours reading epic Fantasy or Science Fiction (as long as her eyes will focus).

Kardia started Hand Quilting with thrift shop supplies in Y2K while living with just a mattress on the floor of a small house trailer. Her two beloved cats contributed fur and moral support. That was the year she started dyeing her hair Green, after fleeing an abusive husband.

2001 through 2006 were spent in the Chicago area participating in Local Cons and PolyChi Group Activities. She is now happily settled in a North Denver suburb with a wonderful Poly family.

Beading and Leather Crafting became passionate interests over the past 2 years. She often teaches herself the basics from Library instruction books and then goes on to Designing new Items.

Kardia is active on-line as PolyKardia on livejournal & fetlife and Karen Hart on Facebook.

The artwork show below is "Hogwarts Key," a hand pieced and quilted wall hanging. The Greek Key border is made of one inch squares of fabric, hand stitched together.
