Kalani Engles attended Stanford University where she studied art under Nathan Oliveira. Her work varies from the abstract to organic, including large steel sculptures and bright, whimsical paintings.
She has had solo exhibitions in California, Colorado, and France and is included in collections across the United States, including the National Museum of Women Archives.
In my work I try to surprise the viewer by highlighting aspects of nature that they may not recognize as real and to challenge them to look more carefully so that they can appreciate more of what the forest has to offer.
