Karen’s styles capture the individuality of her subjects, as well as helping to emphasize the mood and tone of the photograph as a whole. In the Music gallery of her online portfolio, Karen manages to capture her client’s musical style and group dynamic through a visual medium.


In her advertising work, Karen uses fashion as a way to impart road safety reminders in a creative and eye catching manner. The artist’s fashion designs are simple but effective, using blocks of colour and clean lines, with patterned pieces acting as accents or showstoppers. Karen has and continues to work for diverse clients all around the world.
