About

Heart Shaped Rawk LOGO

Heart Shaped Rawk was founded in 2016 by artist Karen Garry with the desire to make cute collectibles that are environmentally sound and to tell compassionate stories that warm the heart of every kidault. Full of critical thought, philosophical musings and colourful masterpieces, Heart Shaped Rawk Books allow the reader to escapade in a locally printed and lovingly painted world where needle felted and illustrated characters set out to prove that anything is possible if you just follow your heart.

Heart Shaped Rawk, shaping the world of tomorrow, into a peaceful and bountiful wonderland, today, one story at a time. Leroy is the first of a six book series.

Karen Garry and Heart Shaped Rawk create a world where love takes lead.
