About the artist: Karen Olson
Modern day still life photography is often connected with mindfulness, stillness, and playfulness. My own experience with the art form has led me to a place of emotional healing and growth. The creative process is such an amazing thing! Our very being compels us to create. It is the means by which we make sense of the world. Each creative endeavor or personal expression brings clarity and sight, revealing who we are, and who we were meant to be.
When we give ourselves permission to play, we begin to realize how essential it is for our well-being. The benefits are immeasurable! We become more productive overall, contentment is easier to find. Satisfied with our creative accomplishments, we go about daily living with more confidence, ease, and grace.
With this mindset, I go about creating art.
