Kari Schutty resides in the gorgeous Napa Valley, but is an artist who eschews painting the obvious vineyards and bottles of wine in an effort to represent the larger scope of beauty that Northern California has to offer.
Be it the quiet Sonoma coastline, the mighty Sierra Nevada, the rolling farmlands, or the waters of the bay, she hopes to capture the play of light in its many facets, especially early and late in the day when the longer, warmer wavelengths predominate. She paints both en plein air and in her studio, but is never happier than being at the coast.
Kari Schutty is originally from Montana and knew an early appreciation for the natural beauty surrounding her.  She graduated from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, in 1998 with a degree in Psychology.  She is a self-taught artist and enjoys educating herself about oil painting nearly as much as painting itself.
When not painting, she enjoys cooking, kayaking, hiking, snorkeling, camping, baseball, genealogy, and seeing new places. 
"Beauty is unbearable, drives us to dispair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity we should like to stretch out over the whole of time." -- Albert Camus
