About kari nicole studio

Kari Nicole Studio is an art studio creating abstract pieces based in the heart of Scandinavia. Passionate about elevating the relationship we have with our homes, KNS believes that art has the power to establish and shape the mood and personality of our spaces.

My artwork is inspired by a love of nature and travel. With an Interior Design based approach, my process is methodical, similar to designs starting with a concept and naturally evolving.

Design is another big influence of my artwork. In the process of my studies with Interior Design, painting became a natural extension of my creative process. It came very naturally to me as my grandmother was also an artist. 

I work with my clients to create original pieces that fit perfectly into their existing spaces. Check out my available artwork under my Shoppe or email me at karinicolestudio@gmail.com for commissions.

Currently living in southern Norway, I play professional football for Amazon Grimstad FK, study Interior Design at KLC School of Design, and run Kari Nicole Studio. I live with my boyfriend who is also a professional footballer.

I went to University in the U.S. at Virginia Tech where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Business. While studying, I also played for the Virginia Tech Women's Soccer team.

Since University, my life has taken me to Hawaii, Chicago, Costa Rica, Australia, New Zealand & Norway. All of these places have not only shaped my perspectives, but also influenced my painting practice.
