Kari Tirrell

She is a member of the Northwest Pastel Society, Pastel Society of the West Coast, Peninsula Art League, and is a juried member of EBSQ Self Representing Artists. A self-taught artist, Kari Tirrell spent her formative years drawing animals and people. Both subjects continue to factor largely in her work today.

Blog: Yes: I missed this initially, for no good reason as the link is clear. As of 5.2.2010 there were 81 followers on this self-confessed artaholic's blog. The M&Ms painting on the blog reminds me of some of Dianna Ponting's subject matter. Beautifully executed.
Ebay: No.


  1. What a nice surprise - thank you! I do have a blog, though. :)

  2. Kari - entirely my fault. I missed it - mea culpa. Have a look at Dianna Ponting's website. Her approach to liquorice allsorts, and marbles, might interest you. And by the way, the painting I featured is the most beautiful hound...

  3. Thank you, I'm glad you like it!

    Dianna Ponting's work is fantastic. I totally enjoyed looking through her web site. I plan on spending some time looking through others you've profiled. Great blog!
