Karen Workman -

Born in Taupō, Karen has been around the world and back again, with a hand in the creative arts at every turn. She gained her B.C.A. in Marketing and Management and her B Mus (Hons) in Piano from Victoria University of Wellington, Doctorate of Musical Arts in Piano performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music, Ohio, USA, and her certificate from the life of hard knocks by working with industry professionals and parents of child actors in Hollywood for 8 years. Karen has played with orchestras and accompanied soloists around the world, and speaks regularly at various talent showcases in the USA. She has spearheaded the development of curriculum for film programmes for high school students, and training for film apprenticeships, and self-published a limited edition book to guide parents of aspiring young actors. Karen is passionate about sharing information and supporting creative people in their endeavors and career development, and with the majority of her family working in the arts, creative rights is a frequent dinner table subject. When not researching, reading, learning and teaching (who are we kidding – that's all the time!) Karen enjoys travel, chasing events at theatres, films, street art, concerts, galleries, and bookstores, meeting new friends and having interesting conversations over a chai latte.
