Karen Olsen

Hi. I'm Karen Olsen, and I'm a graphic designer and illustrator. My career has long had a focus in the high-tech world of Silicon Valley, but these days, I'm doing less of that and more art featuring my favorite subjects—cats, dogs and wildlife. And, I'm having a lot of fun! Out of this work has come FantastiKritters, a line of apparel and other products that feature my animal imagery. I enjoy cat and dog shows, where I see the wonderful pedigreed animals that are the inspiration for some of my favorite designs, but my own cat, a long-haired tuxedo kitty named Rusty, is a mixed-breed...and quite unashamed about it. Rusty is my muse, my companion, and as my gentle critic, is always at my side when I work. Except when my husband is fixing a tuna sandwich".

Karen is also a published writer and an accomplished composer. She participates in the Ashiko Orchestra, which performs African drumming at many events in the San Francisco Bay Area. After the birth of her granddaughter, Karen gently prodded Flying Panda into developing a section of products, including some of her own designs, for toddlers and young people.
