About the Artist

Born and raised in California, Karissa Kaneshiro is a visual artist who started designing and creating at a very young age. Her passion for art has led her to spend most of her life learning & experimenting with different art styles, specifically around graphite, charcoal and paint, with her main inspiration being around drawing & creating portraits.

Her most recent endeavors have led her to create collage pop art using only paper - primarily clippings from magazines and books. This endeavor has allowed her to combined her passion for human portraits with her inspiration of iconic people in society and their story. Even through each element that she adds to the portrait is brought from different places, it all comes together beautifully to create a consice piece of art.
