I have a neutral British accent - my native accent is West Yorkshire , and I can deliver RP if required. My voice is warm, informative and upbeat.
I have excellent sight-reading skills. Documentary and corporate reads are my specialty. I also have a natural flair for telephone messages. I can turn a read around in an hour if needs be.

"Out of many applications including a mixture of pros and amateurs - Karen stood out for us as really clear and professional voice over artist. Her narration of a very wordy script for our documentary was flawless & suited our film very well.
