About Kari

Hi all!!

Kari Mari is what most know me as...just a shortened version of my real name,
Karisia Marinese.
Most would say that...I am something like a Modern Day Hippie mixed with a bit of what you would call a Domestic Goddess. Ha!! :-)

I am heavily involved in the entertainment, fashion, and media arts world!!
I work on various projects ranging from Make Up Artistry to Set Designing amongst other things.
I have been honored to have worked on projects with amazing people.
Such as...
The House That Built Chicago; a documentary executively produced by the Father Of House Music himself "Lil Louis". With this film, I had a solo performance as a Street Dancer.
I was an Extra in MTV's UNDEREMPLOYED 2012 and I was grateful to have to have received IMDB credit for my Make Up Artistry/Wardrobe Styling for the Indie Film, The Lies We Tell But The Secrets We Keep in 2011.
Just to provide a bit of variety. I work well behind and on the scenes!! ;-)

I love to connect and network with those who share the same passions as I do about their crafts and wanting to succeed while helping others achieve their success in the process.

I enjoy providing my knowledge, services, and skills to those who are willing to allow me to embark on their journey and let me expose them to mine as well.

Dreams come true when you believe in "YOU"
Kari Mari~

Unique traits: I am of mixed race, so I can appear to be of different ethnicities for various roles and projects. I also have a cropped/shaven hairstyle. I tend to wear men's hairstyle because I believe it works better with my style of dress and personality. I have freckles on my nose. I also have tattoos.
