Karen Lancey

Working with metal is my passion!

Karen is the whimsical, wild and creative artist behind Metal Mermaid Welding.

Using both new and recycled metal, steel, copper and brass, Karen has been welding amazing pieces of art for walls, homes, gardens, offices, and life.

Karen combines her love of nature, beaches, gardening, and the ocean to create one-of-a-kind pieces that offer surprises and often a good amount of laughter.

Sometimes, the movie industry comes knocking on her door … for a special piece to complete a scene.
Specializing in mermaids, nature is the inspiration behind all of her pieces: from rusty metal 3D salmon sculptures, to shiny humourous birds in interactive cages, and stunning, decorated, intricate life size (5 ft.) metal/steel mermaids.

I explore new ideas and directions every day, sometimes adding a new element like driftwood or rocks or other found materials. It’s never boring!
