About Kari Kline

Kari Kline is a graduate of the Art Institute of Boston, Massachusetts, where she earned a Degree in Fine Art. Ms. Kline furthered her education at the University of Pittsburgh. She has exhibited extensively on the East Coast of the United States.

Originally a watercolor artist, Kari Kline felt the transition to silk painting a natural one. Kari uses the painter's approach to silk, viewing each piece of cloth as an empty canvas, waiting for the transformation of the painter's brush. She is particularly inspired by
natures’ magnificent patterns. Some of her favorites include the unceasing rhythmic line of ocean waves; naked November tree branches interlacing over a stark sky; the beauty and silence of a deep velvet star-laden winter sky; and the riot of color in a brilliant
October landscape. These are the prime sources for Ms. Kline's designs. Ms. Kline was introduced to silk painting in South Carolina. On a life-long quest to find
the perfect medium, she found herself drawn to this 'new' art form. The vibrancy of the silk dyes offered intense color, unlike any other medium she'd tried. Her first piece, which she transformed into a wall hanging, was promptly sold. Ms. Kline felt her quest had come to an end.

Her body of work has grown to include watercolors, silk painting, collage, and woodblock prints. Her paintings are in private collections throughout the United States. She maintains a studio in New England where she teaches watercolor and silk painting.
