BIOGRAPHY

Kari Tirrell is a self-taught artist who spent her formative years drawing people and animals in graphite, charcoal, and ink.  She won her first award in an art contest at age 11. After many years of drawing, Kari changed direction and started painting abstracts in acrylic, selling her work online to collectors around the globe. She eventually returned to realism, and currently paints contemporary still life in soft pastel, oil, and acrylic.  

Kari’s work has been juried into many regional, national, and international exhibitions, and has received numerous awards.  She is a Master Pastelist with the Pastel Society of America, a Distinguished Pastelist with the Pastel Society of the West Coast, a signature member of the Northwest Pastel Society, and a Master Circle member of the International Association of Pastel Societies.
