Kari Newton

Artist | Photographer | Designer


In a perfect world, I would spend my days working with rescue animals and painting.  I went to school in Sioux Falls, SD for Fine Art at Augustana University and spent many endless nights in the studio climbing in and out of paintings.  It was consuming work that drove me as much crazy as it enchanted my mind. Often times, I conceptualize ideas through my photography and then re-imagine them with paint.  The biggest difference between my photos and paintings is that I tend to drain all the color out of photographs and pour it all into the paint strokes.  

If you are interested in a commission or a painting that is for sale, please contact me to collaborate.  kari@figaroarchives.com
