Kari  Duke

Kari Duke, a self-taught artist, living in Edmonton, Alberta in a small community near the University of Alberta in an area surrounded by urban alleys that tend to reflect an untouched and overgrown environment.

"I find the reflections in the puddles after a heavy rain or the play of light on the old fences to be an exciting subject matter. The naked trees in the winter, the deep snow, and the simplicity of the old back alleys in changing seasons, is what draws me in time and time again."

Kari Duke's work is portrayed by many as romantic and reminiscent to the public of a simpler time. The colorful paintings have a fresh confident feel that captures the charm of an earlier era, and the Canadian icon aspect of her work speaks to those not only in Alberta but all across Canada.
