Born in Thailand, Kanita grew up surrounded by the vibrant colours of the gorgeous Thai silks which were produced in her parents’ Thai silk factory in Bangkok.

Coming to Scotland initially to study English, Kanita found her way to Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, where she studied textile design.

Now living in Aberdeen, Kanita’s love of colour and her knowledge of fabric design can be seen in the pleasing compositions and subtle, often imaginative colourings of her paintings, to which she has now turned full time. Kanita’s paintings also demonstrate a diversity in styles, which she attributes to the two major influences in her life-that of her Eastern heritage, which blends easily with her adopted Scottishness.

Commissioning Artwork

If you like the style and have a particular subject in mind then it may be possible to commission a piece from the particular artist.

The Atelier Gallery has managed many commissions for our clients and believes it is a unique and personal way of purchasing art. We are here to simplify a process that allows you to become fully engaged, as appropriate, with the design and development of a bespoke piece of artwork.
