In addition to composing and singing several  songs in the new film, CHRISTMAS RIDE, Kari Fleskes plays a role of the adult April.   So happy to have her many talents, along with those of over sixty more, involved in this production.–Karen Francis, producer   

Songwriting is my favorite kind of creative art. Lyrics have been a passion since I wrote my first song at age eight. In the last few years, my original music has won several online competitions, including Yobi TV’s Singer/Songwriter of the Year in 2011. My songs have also been awarded several gold medals for Best Original Song, Favorite Artist Award, Best Female Songwriter, among other web-based awards.

For work, though, I make jewelry, and I love it so much! My business, Kari Fleskes Jewelry, specializes in couture jewelry, all made delicately by hand with new and up-cycled materials. Each item is unique to the owner, truely one of a kind. Kari Fleskes Jewelry also has a “Design Your Own” aspect that allows the customer the ability to participate in the design process of their handmade jewelry. I love this aspect for special gifts or occasions! And it’s a lot of fun. My designs have been featured in showcases, runways, magazines, film, art shows, and many local photoshoots and other creative projects. I was so honored to be selected as Memphis’s Belle Award’s Designer of the Year for 2012 and I make all types of jewelry ranging from sterling silver wire sculptures to vintage reworked fashion jewelry. You can view some of my designs at

In addition to the jewelry and music, I am also a portrait artist. To see samples of all my work, visit my Facebook Sign the guestbook or “like” the page and keep in touch with me!
