Kari-Lise Alexander is an artist painter working out of Seattle, Washington. Her expressive work explores themes rooted in her Scandinavian heritage. Kari-Lise creates paintings that captivate the viewer. Her work often reflects the Norwegian folk art of rosemaling. This traditional art is given a contemporary feel in many of Kari-Lise’s paintings as it wraps and entwines itself within the composition, sometimes floating as a ghost as if it were an ancestral reminder.
