Karen O’Nan Martin, Basket Maker


Karen O

sample basketBasketmaker Karen O’Nan Martin began weaving in 1986 as a pastime while she stayed at home with her young children. But the growing interest in her baskets from family and friends inspired her to turn the hobby into a business, Hillcrest Collectibles.

artworkThough many of the baskets Karen weaves are traditional, functional baskets from the past, she also adds a bit of her love for gardening and nature into her work. She accents some of her baskets with pods, shells, and dried flowers, then stains each one with a natural dye made from walnut hulls.

Karen lives in rural Henderson County with her husband and three children. Her work can also be found in art galleries, fine gift shops, and arts and crafts stores thoughout the United States.
