Hi, I am Karen Wegehenkel, it’s so nice to meet you! Since you are here, let me tell you a bit more about myself. I am an Intuitive Graphic Designer, and my favorite clients are companies selling products or services that make the world a better place, because this is how I feel I can make a difference.

How is my graphic design intuitive you might ask? Meditation has helped me become a better person, and meditation is helping me become a better designer. With intuition, awareness and certain questions I get to the core of my clients’ business goals and intentions, to elevate their business and help them express their truest selves. For examples on this, please hop over to my blog.

I call the beautiful Rogue Valley in southern Oregon my home, but that doesn’t really matter because I can work from anywhere! So if you are curious about what I do, maybe want to work with me or just want to say hi, please connect with me.

Here is a recent interview I did with Jill K. Thomas on October 24, 2023, it is about 40 minutes long.

Below, find some more detailed facts about my work experience, education and skills.

On a personal note…

Portrait in the woods with dog

Originally from (East) Germany, I came to the US – in the pursuit of happiness – in early 2000. As such I have a unique view on the world, can think outside of the box and take your ideas into directions you might not even have considered. In my spare time – when I don’t meditate – I draw, paint, sculpt, create photos, watch my daughter grow, dig around in the garden, go for long hikes with my dog, play with horses, meet with friends, cook yummy food, and much more. The days are too short!

Creating art has always been my passion. With being an intuitive designer I am living my dream and I am very grateful that I can occupy my days with something I love so much!
