Karri Klawiter is a self-taught digital artist. She has worked off and on in graphic design for over 20 years, but it wasn’t until 2008 that she picked up her first digital SLR camera and began truly exploring the depth of her field. It wasn’t long before she won her first recognition and photographic award. Her work soon started selling internationally.

If you ask Karri, she doesn’t consider herself a Photographer, but a Digital Artist or Photo Illustrator. She feels her true talent lies within the editing process, where her creativity can truly shine.

In early 2012, Karri broadened her horizons and offered up her services for creating book covers. As her skills grew in photo-manipulation, she was able to create truely custom pieces of art. She now does cover art full time and has become a seasoned, award winning cover artist, but still tries to find time for a bit of photography here and there.

Currently, there are over 1000 published ebook and paperback books available with cover art by Karri.
