If you are attracted to the feel, mood or style of my paintings but are looking for a certain location or size I would be happy to work with you to make your own original piece. I can work from photos, stories, and inspirations...

Commissions allow me to recreate a special place or time just for you, your space and your budget.

Please feel free to call or email me with any questions. ❀ ~ 206-793-3064

This page has a few examples of past commissions as well as reviews/testimonials.


"I saw Kari's work in Fremont & was struck by the way she captures the many ethereal moods of cloud, water & light.

I finally contacted her to ask about a commission - to do our view, as we've never been able to capture the magic by photo.

The work is beautiful - capturing the glow that can happen on the water as well as the tones echoing between the waters of the sound & the clouds above.

Kari made the process so easy. We love the finished work. It is destined to take center stage in our living room."

"I just LOVE it.....small and alive and beautifully made. I'd like several more to go beside it...will make that my goal!"

"I contacted Kari after seeing her beautiful artwork at Essential Bakery to ask if she ever did commissioned pieces. She responded right away and we scheduled an appointment to talk. Before even meeting, she had developed ideas for a piece from some photos I emailed her. She was able to get the piece done right away, even though it was during the holiday season! My boyfriend loved it--Kari made a beautiful encaustic piece from a photo of our first trip together. Thanks so much Kari!"

"Thank you, Kari. I bought this for my wife as a 26 year anniversary present and it's perfect. Very unusual and beautiful."

I hope you enjoy browsing through my artwork, but I ask that you respect the copyright protection of all of my images and not copy or reproduce them in any form.
