Photographer/Fine Art Photographer: Karen Ollis

Authenticity is important to Karen Ollis. Whether photographing the outdoors, people, or products, her approach is to tell the story with depth. Karen’s attention to detail and design quality highlights her creative ability. “The painter in me enjoys conceptual layered works which tell a story in a single frame”.
