About Karen Kardatzke

With color, movement & simplicity I try to marry happiness and soothing emotions in my work to bring a sense of calm to your space. I am self taught and use a variety of techniques to create my artwork including photography, illustration & graphic design. I find my inspiration often in the natural world.

Hi Karen, thanks you for the likes and comments on my work! To answer your question - no, that was not a photograph. I'm trying some creative graphic digital designs with transparencies and movement. Your designs are very dreamy - good luck in the challenge:)
