Meet the Artist – Kanita Sim at the Milton Art Gallery
A Thai artist who has made the north-east her home is launching her first book. Born in Thailand, Kanita Sim grew up surrounded by the vibrant colours of the gorgeous Thai silks which were produced in her parent’s 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. Her book ‘Colours, My Eastern Heritage’ showcases her favourite pieces which have been inspired by the two major influences in her life – her Eastern heritage and Scotland.
