Montana artist Kara Tripp traded in her brushes for a palette knife and hasn't looked back. She enjoys the unique markings created in the oil paint as well as the looseness the palette knife lends her work. This technique adds a contemporary twist to her traditional subjects which include; grain elevators, ranch animals and regional landscapes.
Kara was chosen as the 2014 Sweet Pea poster artist and has received many awards for her work, including Best in Show at the Sweet Pea art show in 2013, 2014, and 2015. She has participated in museum exhibitions as well as many solo and group exhibitions. Her work was shown in a solo exhibition at the Bozeman Public Library in 2015 and upcoming in November 2017.
Kara opened Tripp Studio in 2014.
