Karolina Born-Tschümperlin - Naramata Art
"In my family, the interest in art dates back to my grandfather, who passionately collected 20th century contemporary art. His passion was passed on to my parents and even as a small child, I found myself hauled around to galleries and museums that were showing important art exhibits all over Europe and the US.
I remember one occasion, when I got "parked" with French artists in the Haute Provence, where I learnt a considerable amount about composition and color, being allowed to flail away with their paints and brushes. Other than this rather unconventional way and a short period of studying art history at the Université de la Sorbonne in Paris, I have not had any formal art training.
Although I find my inspiration mostly in nature and the natural beauty out there, I can get quite excited about 20iest Century expressionism and "all things pop art" ."
