Karen Davis is an artist, teacher, and curator. Her work is featured at MASS MoCA and in the collections of the Center for Photography at Woodstock; Lishui Museum of Photography (China); Houghton Library, Harvard, and corporate and private collections. Her book, Still Stepping: A Family Portrait, was published in 2020 (2nd edition 2022.) She is a Critical Mass finalist and recipient of the Artists Fellowship Award-CPW. Her photographs and artist books have appeared in solo and featured exhibits throughout the country.

Karen’s work has long been influenced by the spontaneity of street photography and, more recently, by the complexity and power of montage. Through her photographs, writing, books, and mixed-media projects, she explores her environment and the strands of her life. Working in series, she tells her stories creating bonds that suggest they are not hers alone.

Karen is curator/co-founder of Davis Orton Gallery in Hudson NY. She teaches Portfolio Development and Marketing and The Self-Published Photobook Workshop online for the Griffin Museum of Photography.
