Karen Loprete graduated from the High School of Art and Design in New York City, where she concentrated on fashion design and photography. She earned her BFA in graphic design from Syracuse University and later her MS in Art Education from Queens College.

For years Karen had a career as a graphic designer and illustrator in New York City.
