About Kina

Kina Forney is a multidisciplinary artist based in Ottawa, Ontario. She received a BFA with distinction from the University of Concordia in Montreal in 2009. She is primarily a painter and illustrator with a background in animation, music, graphic design and computational arts. She has exhibited in both Canada and the United States.

Kina's most recent work is inspired by deep space digital photographs from NASA and the Hubble Space Telescope, specifically nebulae and supernovas. Her unique sense of movement and colour transforms these scenes into her own fantastic dreamscapes. She enjoys capturing beauty in nature, focusing on light to create colourful canvases.

Kina works from her home studio in Ottawa, Canada with her family.
