Kari Lennartson… 

grew up with one foot in Northern Minnesota, the other in Canada, jumping on hay bales and picking wild berries.  Borders and boundaries, as well as the notion of “home” have been salient motifs during her artistic career.  She earned her MFA in Painting at Colorado State University and holds a Colorado Teaching License in K-12 Art Education.  She completed a BA in Studio Arts and Scandinavian Studies from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, during which time she spent a semester studying Nordic Art History at Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden.  In addition to her artistic practice, Lennartson has had the great fortune of teaching Art and Art History for 15 years, both in higher education as well as at the High School and Middle School levels.
