Wife, mother of three, photographer, artist, and now CEO and Curator for a new art design company called Art Maiden. Karlana Pedersen has been at the forefront of photography, art and technology throughout her career. As the market for photography and art changes, Karlana has been inspired by the change as well, often privately consulting for fellow artists and photographers on new business strategies regarding how consumers acquire art, and how artists can better leverage their art in this ever-changing age of technology.
“My ultimate goal is to create artwork that my client’s love, to give back to the community, and to create a network of collectors, creatives and designers that share thoughts and ideas for the common goal of success, not only for the industry as a whole, but success for the individual artist as well.
I encourage anyone who loves art and photography, all enthusists, and artists alike, to join me on this journey. I will share my discoveries and challenges of operating a startup in a $65 billion dollar per year industry, while balancing a sometimes crazy family life. Where pain and perseverance are the good, bad and sometimes ugly reality of getting things done in the business of art.” - Karlana
