Karen Olson

Fine Art and Conceptual Photography

As an artist working in photography, I am interested in portraying human emotion with all its intricacies and complexities. I illustrate the language of the subconscious mind and use the medium to dig deep into the psyche. A lifetime of artistic exploration feeds my perspective and process. Intertwining digital captures of diverse artistic elements and employing a unique blending process allows me to depict depth of emotional experience and subtlety of thought.

Actively seeking to express deep-seated emotion visually has empowered me and those I work with in many ways. Expression leads to understanding and gives both the participants and the viewer voice. I feel strongly that it is our strength to express the deepest part of our selves, our internal struggles, and invisible wounds; to validate and honor the pain we carry in our hearts.

I have been a working Maine artist for 30 years. I actively support and collaborate with other artists locally and nationally. Creativity, specifically working to understand the neuropsychology behind the creative process, is my passion and my joy.


Collaborations are welcome and encouraged. I am available for fine art and conceptual photo shoots.
