Kari-Lise Alexander's expressive work explores themes rooted in her Scandinavian heritage. Innocent maidens float in worlds of their own making, oftentimes losing themselves in their daydreams. At a young age Kari-Lise was always experimenting with paints, pencils, pastels and anything else she could get her hands on. In 2000 she studied fine art for two semesters but left college to pursue other interests. It wasn't until spring of 2009 that her heart led her back to painting and she hasn't stopped since. Working from her home studio in Seattle, 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.

The exhibition will run from February 14 - March 7, 2015
