During her time as a New Media major at UNC Asheville, Kari found that her pursuits in video, photography, and artistic direction could serve her beyond the experimental work she was accustomed to creating for herself. Since her preteen years she had gained experience navigating the web, participating in various social media platforms, and using them to make connections and friends from all over the world. She found that when combining her online marketing knowledge with the artistic integrity and limitless creative freedom she was taught by the faculty at UNCA, she was able to position herself as a self-starter in the commercial world. Upon graduation she stepped out into post-grad life working as a freelance artist. She provides her artistic services to clients of all varieties and happily works from home as a full-time freelancer.
