Fleur Olby is a photographic artist based in North Yorkshire, UK.
Her delicately sensual work is about the environment, the transformative spirit of Nature and the experience or sensation of ‘Beauty’.
Photographically she explores the line of abstraction, where a photograph connects to abstract emotion and becomes an image, and where gardens meet the landscape through the sense of place.
Established in London, her work has been published, commissioned and exhibited internationally.
