Welcome to the World of Karen Harvey – lover of fast cars, fascinating things, beautiful places, chasing chickens, whispering to cats, drinks with ginger in them and eating too many biscuits.

Karen is a consultant, curator and collaborator who works to bring innovative ideas and fundamental kindness to every project. She has curated exhibitions internationally and won awards for photography, writing and community development. In 2019 she was named the Digital Influencer of the Year at the Holland Press Awards.

The Creative Director of international photography organisation, Shutter Hub, Karen founded the organisation to create a supportive community for photographers and to provide a platform for the development of ideas and careers. She develops partnerships and projects, and produces most of their exhibitions.

Karen founded and co-directs the charitable organisation Toiletries Amnesty, an initiative working to end hygiene poverty in the UK and abroad. In 2019 alone, Toiletries Amnesty helped get toiletries to over 250,000 people. In 2018 Karen received the Global X Foundation Award for Innovation for Toiletries Amnesty, and in 2021 was announced as a finalist in the NHB Awards for Entrepreneur of the Year.
