Allen & Allen Photo & Craft

Karen Jordan Allen (Co-Owner)
Ru Allen (Co-Owner)

Allen & Allen Photo & Craft is owned by mother and daughter Maine artists who specialize in nature photography, photographic nature mandalas, mandala fabric crafts, and hand-built ceramics. Karen creates mandalas and other symmetrical images step-by-step from her own photos, mostly of nature but also of interesting architectural details and unique objects. She uses these images to make cards, matted and unmatted prints, calendars, coloring pages, canvas wraps, and trinket boxes. She also prints her mandalas onto inkjet fabric to make bags, singing bowl cushions, and other crafts. Her daughter, Ru, also takes nature photos, specializing in close-ups of flora and fauna as well as peaceful landscapes. Insects are a particular interest. A potter as well as a photographer, Ru creates hand-built mugs, vases, pendants, and other objects with designs inspired by nature, dreams, and mythology.
