Kato (Karen) Rempel’s work is a reflection of beauty, diversity and mystique drawn from many years of international living and experience. She's combined her 25 years of experience in graphic and web design into a new artistic adventure. Initially capturing the fascination of Indian women and its remarkable people Kato's has expanded her reach to this continent and is focused on capturing the passion of women and couples through her figurative exploration. Many of her pieces have been created using her alla-prima technique and lean towards an impressionistic style.
Her original artwork graces the private collections in homes worldwide, from London, England to Sydney, German, Australia, Canada and the US.
An enthusiastic and passionate student for the past decade, Kato has studied with Kristy Gordon, completed the US Virtual Art Academy’s three year Alla Prima Plein Air program with Barry John Raybould, and is currently studying with Jerry Markham in Kelowna, BC.
Kato has won several awards through the Federation of Canadian Artists juried shows over the last few years and has now completed a peer review advancement that now gives her the designation of AFCA (Associate Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists)
