Karyn Knight Detering has been a graphic recorder and graphic facilitator for thirteen years, and has effectively been using visual communication to develop ideas and concepts for more that twenty-three years.


Initially trained as an Interior Designer, Karyn coupled this dynamic skill set with her passion for education and training.  Karyn returned to school and gained a postgraduate in Art & Design Education. 


Soon after graduating, Karyn moved to Africa to work at the Botswana College of Education lecturing in Design Education. She followed her work in Africa with a volunteer assignment in the West Indies.


In 2005 Karyn founded Ideas Take Shape, a graphic facilitation company that combines Karyn’s wealth of experience and formal training to provide clients with creative ways to communicate their ideas and concepts.
