"I seek to be impeccable, and this can only be achieved through open-mindedness."

-Garm // Ulver

Karla Fuller-Palmer is a rambunctious conceptual artist and maker living in Seattle, WA. She graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in 2013 with a BFA in Fine Arts, focused on video & sculpture. Ironically, her main interests have become photo and painting, and she’s largely self-taught thanks to not having figured that out while attending school. She really likes photo, video, sculpture, drawing, cats, the bizarre & creativity at every turn.  Subjects and concepts vary greatly; documentation of daily experience due to a nomadic military upbringing & fierce death anxiety, awe of nature, social commentary, exploration of personal or past myth, pure aesthetic choice or appreciation of a moment.

High concept, lo-fi, no budget, DIY 'til I die.
