I'm Karin. Author, artist and the creator of Niki Owl. I use words, art and personal development techniques to help people discover their personal genius and reinvent themselves.
One of my first loves, besides reading, was writing stories. Then came drawing. It was only natural for me to “marry” the two and end up creating illustrated books. The first of these include my cartoon character Niki Owl, Messenger of Love, Joy and Imagination.
However, my love for books goes beyond simply writing them. I love designing books and collaborating with other artists and writers to help bring to life their creations.
Art has played an important part of my personal (and professional) evolution, inspired by “the greats” such as Da Vinci, Picasso and Seurat. I love posing the question, “How does art transform us as people, and as a collective society?”
It’s through illustrations, engravings and mixed techniques that I feel I can express certain observations and life experiences.
Ignite Your Personal Genius

We all contain that powerful, sacred energy to create life with. Yet so many people forget this and walk through life with grey clouds lingering over them, thinking life happens to them, not for them. Do you ever feel this way?
What if you put some colour back into your life and chose to live your True North? Discover how to rescue your inner kid, connect the powerful dots of creativity within your heart and mind, and set your hidden gifts free so you can move confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Love wants to speak to you, are you listening?
The Love Cards were born out of heeding a deep inner call to create something new and a way to process things I’ve gone through in the name of Love, which I believe many people can relate to somehow. They’re simple phrases containing thoughts, questions, meditations on Love, realisations… sometimes they may apply to something you’re experiencing in the moment, give you insight on something from before, or help you focus future communications.
Most of all, messages that go straight to the heart of the matter, to open you up to the greatest Love within you.
