Karin is a computer designer and illustrator, but also an architect with a Master's degree in Architecture at the Chalmers' University of Technology. She has been working with graphic designs and art since 1985. Computer aided design entered her scene in the late 80:ies. In the beginning, she worked in a Mac and Windows environment with programs like Photoshop, Pagemaker, Corel Draw and Illustrator etc. In 1996 she entered the Unix arena, and in 1997 she started to use Gimp for image manipulation and graphic design. She is now using Gimp on a daily basis. Most of her work has been concerned with different publications, posters and exhibition displays. If you want to take a look some of her work, please check out the Gimp Around chapter. All artistic images in this manual are produced by her (there are some marked exceptions). She is now moving over to Web design and will for example create the web site for Gyve; which is a free drawing program and a counterpart to Gimp.
