About the Artist
Kali Wallner was born in 1997 and was raised in Forest Grove, Oregon. She attended the Art institute of Portland directly after high school to pursue a commercial photography field. While she took classes, Kali built up a studio lighting practice which is based around editorial, fashion, and food photography which led her to photograph for the Slip Magazine Club during her attendance; including styling shoots, collaborating with other majors to create a cohesive and unified idea, and building a seasonal magazine for two years.
After the closing of the Art Institute in 2018, Kali transferred to Pacific Northwest College of Arts and graduated in 2021. Here is where she focused on expanding her fine art and personal practice, falling in love with story telling through images.
