Kari Kristensen is a contemporary Canadian printmaker living in Vancouver, BC. Born and raised in Dutton Ontario, Kari is a graduate of the University of Guelph where she studied Art History and Classical Studies. Both disciplines inform her work in equal measure, and she also credits her close proximity to the London Regionalism movement and the McMichael Gallery as major artistic influences. After moving to Vancouver Kari belonged to a printmaking collective on Granville Island prior to establishing her practice in the historic 1000 Parker street building.
