I teach the basics graphic design through Canva, how to set up your Canva account, or how to create and sell Canva Templates.
I teach all about color and how to use my favorite app to create beautiful illustrations on the iPad.
I teach others how to create websites on Elementor for WP. This combines strategy, design skills, and simple web development.
I’m Kari, a graphic designer and educator who helps children and adults learn design thinking and digital art. I spent 8 years as a web and brand designer, and now I share my skills and knowledge to help others pursue a life of doing what they love.
Each day, I look for new ways that I can grow my creative practice. I am a lifeong learner and hope to spread that passion to others though my courses and vibrant designs.
Fun fact: I gave up art in second grade because I didn't want to compete with my best friend.
I wish someone had told me at that time (besides my parents) that it’s OK to keep creating and that it’s important to find my own path rather than to compare myself with others.
I didn’t even know that graphic design was a legitimate “thing” until my senior year in college, when I undertook an internship in France. There, I discovered how design was used to communicate the country’s rich heritage with a modern twist, and that there is no “right way” to do things. Design is a creative discipline I could keep experimenting with.
