I’m Karen - the ‘dreamer’ behind Studio 56.

I am a wife, mother & grandmother who loves living at Mangawhai Heads.

My main priorities in life are ‘faith, family & friends’… and I enjoy music, coffee, reading, wine, keeping fit, my swimming pool and working with beautiful things in my Studio.

 Studio 56 - a home based business - became a reality in May 2020.

I have so enjoyed researching, discovering and procuring an eclectic range of Gifts + Art.


I am very appreciative of family and friends who have helped me get Studio 56 established, especially my husband Steve.


I hope you enjoy viewing what we have in stock and maybe you will find something that will bless you or someone else!
