About the artists:
Chasity and Kari met a year ago while waiting for their daughters at the school bus stop. After learning that they were both artists the two became fast friends. They frequently set up playdates to work on their own art pieces, encouraging each other to produce more and better art. During one such day Chasity suggested a joint effort; artworks that combine Chasity’s collages with Kari’s watercolors.

Chasity Porter is a self-willed, freethinking maniac with a penchant for rejecting predictability. Her work typically develops out of a personal—though sometimes fleeting—emotional response to any given stimulus. She is a mixed-media artist with a concentration in collage, design, and assemblage. She earned her BFA in Applied Design and Visual Arts from University of Houston - Clear Lake. Her work has been locally and internationally exhibited. Doing art full time, she's not only a mother and a wife but also the founder and owner of Dormalou Project.

Kari grew up in Seattle, Washington. She earned a BA in Visual Arts (emphasis in studio arts) at BYU. She’s always had a passion for producing art, primarily through utilizing watercolors and colored pencil. She loves creating cheerfully realistic compositions of animals and people, often with a hint of humor. She obsesses over accentuating and controlling watercolor’s stubborn and unpredictable nature. She enjoys exploring different color palettes in her work as well. Painting has served as a particularly nice diversion from the perpetual horrors of domesticity. Her home is almost always in chaos but her art is immaculate. Neighbors is her first show.
