    Short description of my voice

    Karen is an extremely versatile performer with an excellent ear for accents. Her native central Scottish accent is bright, lively, natural and warm and she can easily turn her hand to most Scottish accents to a native standard. She is equally skilled in performing London, RP and various American accents to an extremely high standard, along with various regional English accents. Karen has a great sense of character and is equally at home voicing commercials, corporate reads, radio drama or animations.
