Karolina Born-Tschuemperlin was born in 1964 in Switzerland and moved to Canada in 1995.

She studied English in Cambridge, England, and French and art history at the Université de la Sorbonne in Paris, France. She holds a degree as a translator of foreign modern languages from the Translator School Dolba in Basel, Switzerland and has worked in this capacity in Switzerland and Canada for many years. 

She doesn't have any formal painting training, yet has been painting all her life mostly in acrylics, but also in oils. She has been part of exhibitions, both in Canada and in Switzerland.

Karolina finds her inspiration in all things nature. Predominantly, she paints landscapes. Her vibrant colour palette speaks for itself. "Painting makes me happy!" is all she has to say about her work.


Parts of Karolina's work has been published in 2014, in the book "Okanagan Slow Road" in collaboration with author Bernadette McDonald, by Touchwood Editions, which has been reprinted to a second edition in 2017.

Her originals have been sold all over Canada. For new work, please contact her, or visit her in her lavender shop/gallery in Naramata or by appointment in her home studio.
