Art by Kaari is nature-inspired art & design born from the studio of Kaari Selven...
My goal with my art is simple: to express the delight and magic of the outdoors and to illustrate the relationship we as humans have with nature. My work speaks to those who value being outside and have an identity rooted in adventure, exploration and a sense of wonder for the earth.
My medium of choice has evolved to be primarily pen & ink (sometimes traditional, most of the time digital). You can identify my work by the obsessive amount of detail, precise linework and shading with high-contrast between black and white.
Each and every Art by Kaari print is drawn, printed and shipped from my studio in Napa, CA. Art prints come individually packaged in a clear, fitted bag along with a backing board. Frames are not included. It is important to me as a small, creative business to remain conscious of environmental impact in my packaging & production.
I believe high-quality goods are necessary to prevent overconsumption and that is reflected in my sticker collection. They are American-made, waterproof, and UV/scratch resistant - they hold up wonderfully to runs in the dishwasher on waterbottles or, they’ll last for years on a car bumper or window. To minimize environmental impact, vinyl stickers do not come individually packaged.
Lastly, if you’re wondering how to pronounce my name, that is a fairly common inquiry. Kaari rhymes with sorry, or better yet, Ferrari! Now that you know, don’t let me catch you calling me Carrie ;)
