Engaged in her studio practice full-time since graduating in 2003 [BFA, Honors, Jewellery + Metalsmithing, ACAD], Kari is a jewellery designer/maker and mixed media artist. She makes her living as a jewellery designer/maker characterized by intense periods of design and production, bookended with projects for custom clients. Increasingly, other areas of artistic interest are bidding for Kari’s time such as an ongoing series of mixed media assemblage work and public art projects.
Her aim is to create substance and meaning through her work. She shows and sells her jewellery designs through various gallery and boutique venues across Canada. She exhibits her mixed media work regularly, both nationally and internationally. Always up for the next creative adventure, she loves learning and expanding her understanding of the creative process. Currently Kari lives in the glorious Canadian Rockies in Canmore, Alberta with her family, where she works out of her independent studio.
