Originally from Fairhope, Alabama, Kari Kant has resided in Washington, D.C. since 2004. As a self-taught abstract expressionist artist, she draws inspiration from her life as an independent professional woman living in the nation's capital. She is known for including several layers of texture to create vibrant pieces that literally pop out from the canvas.
Kari picked up a paint brush and began painting in 2009, exploring and learning new techniques on her own through trial and error. At the end of 2011 she launched Kari Kant Art where she now paints by commission for privately funded projects as well as for charitable causes.
I have the ability to create paintings that reflect my feelings; feelings from my past, my present, my future, my happiness, my pain, my curiosity, my sense of humor, my charming Southern personality, my humility, my sensitivity, my dreams, my failures and every other little thing in between. I'm grateful and feel blessed every day to be able to share my talent with others.
