Cari Humphry was born in Forrest City, a small rural town in eastern Arkansas. She attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and graduated in 1997 with a BS in Accounting. While at the UofA she studied Architecture her first year and intermingled art & painting classes in her schedule as electives.
After nine years of working in public and non-profit accounting, Cari began painting again. It quickly became a habit, or a healthy obsession. She is intrigued with great artists who captured movement and light with such loose and simple strokes. 'For me, the most enjoyable part of painting is the translation from the subject to the canvas... through the compostion, the movement in the brush strokes and the use of color to enhance the light.'
Cari is married with two children living in beautiful Northwest Arkansas.
A collection of Cari's work is currently hanging in Red Hill Gallery in Fayetteville, Arkansas and in Gallery 202 in historic Franklin, TN.
