Kari Quirky Art
My name is Kari Hansen; I was born on an army base in Colorado but live in Minnesota. There was a need for escape from my childhood, and so I used art to flee from the anxieties and mental stresses of this life. My art grew three years ago when I decided to quit smoking and put my money into my artwork. I always have a passion for working in oil medium but enjoy drawing and creating anything unusual. I consider myself a quirky artist because I am not the conventional type that abides by guidelines. I create surreal, abstract and portraits mainly in oil medium on canvas. I have been recently working on new techniques called transfer art, flow art and sponge techniques with my oil mediums along with some acrylic medium. I create my art out of different human emotions from every walk of life even my own. I sometimes step out of the realm of emotions and create fantasy paintings. I have a passion for creating art that inspires others and makes a non-believer of the art world see something they never saw before.
