See Me as a Creator – Karri

Aimed at sharing the true identities and talents of the Ranchers at DHR, the SEE ME campaign showcases the unique stories of those we serve and gives readers an inside look into their life at Down Home Ranch. Follow along as we tell you the story of Karri…

Name: Karri
Age: 54
Rancher Since: September 2010
Favorite Hobby: Singing

Creating works of art is imperative to Karri. Keeping her art supplies close to her brings her comfort and peace throughout the day. She spends most of her spare time creating art in her adult coloring books, but she also enjoys drawing original creations. Some of her original artwork includes a picture of a birthday cake she drew on her birthday and portraits of her Barbies. Karri has also been known to draw pictures of personal items she needs or wants as a way to communicate. Coloring books with princesses or other magical creatures are her favorite, as she excitedly uses her imagination to bring the characters to life. Staff and family agree that creating art is calming for Karri, allowing her an outlet to de-stress whenever she needs. When asked how coloring makes her feel, Karri quickly (and loudly!) states, “Good!”
