Western Australian artist Karli Dore employs watercolour paints to explore art through colour. Influenced by the intense rainbow of colours that surround the world, Karli has decided to create a radiant atmosphere, where the watercolours bond with the paper and move without restraint.
The world is full of vibrancy and colour, and through her art works Karli endeavours to brighten the lives of others.
Various exhibitions throughout the South West, including the South West Art Trail, have showcased Karli’s collection, and the Bassendean Library is showing Karli’s art works from 13-30 August.
