Kari Westphal picture

Kari Westphal

Seattle, Washington

I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. My work is inspired by a desire to explore the things that give me peace. I think it is wonderful that my paintings can be incorporated into everyday items, it simply makes me happy to be able to 'wear' or 'carry' my images with me :)

My intention has always been to share the calm and peace that I find out in the world, hoping to allow for a retreat for those who can 'read' it in the images I create. I am happiest when I am outside, and have been lucky to experience so many variations in the sky and earth.

I hope that my art provides an outlet; a mini vacation, for those who venture inside. My goal is to create objects that are enjoyable to look at, and peaceful when understood. Please visit my website to see the original paintings. My artwork now resides in private & corporate collections in the United States, Canada, Panama & Europe.
