MY NAME IS ARRIN KARTEL
I'm an artist and graphic designer living in Iowa. I share my home with my husband, Sean, and our wonderful furbabies.
I paint whimsical, bright abstract and impressionist landscapes primarily in oil. I am largely inspired by color, nature and beautiful places here on earth.
I use vibrant colors such as shades of pink, purples, greens and blues to create fun and lighthearted artwork. I believe that creating art is all about the process. I enjoy putting paint to canvas and discovering what happens as the result. I hope my paintings can make people feel as happy as I felt creating them.
"Man suffers only because he take seriously what the gods made for fun." --Alan Watts
I work full-time as a graphic designer but I like to make my own designs on my time off (and when I'm not painting!) You can find printable organizational pages over on my Make Design shop!
