Karisa Keasey

has been using her paintings to raise awareness and funds for some of the most marginalized people in the world for more than six years. After visiting an orphanage in India during college, she could no longer paint without a purpose. After earning a degree in studio arts from George Fox University in 2013, she began her philanthropic journey of creativity by giving a percentage of all her proceeds to charitable organizations. She lives in the Seattle area, where she paints and speaks full-time. To learn more about Keasey and her work, visit karisakeasey.com, and follow her on Facebook and Instagram @karisakeaseyart.
