Karo T (Caroline Trépanier)
Artist-painter, a zest for life on canvas
The acrylic tubes are dancing, flying around. Caroline Trépanier paints mostly with her hands. Her works of art vibrate almost as much as her personality! Karo T will charm you with her use of primary colors that will bring you back to your childhood; she reaches the inner child in all of us! To collect the works of Karo T is to paint your walls with joy, to brighten up each of your rooms. She doesn’t paint to live, she lives for painting! She is among the few artists that create with happiness, joy of life, gratefulness and profusion as inspirations. Karo T infuses her works with the moments that took her breath away.
She is mainly self-taught. Her art is spontaneous, free! Born artist in a small northern francophone village of Ontario (Smooth Rock Falls), she had the opportunity to follow the teachings of Michel Tanguay, followed by those of Jean Brillant during her teenage years in her adopted Lac St-Jean. Afterwards, she mainly evolved in Montreal alongside Éric Slutsky and Phillipp Iverson, at the Saidye Bronfman School of Fine Arts. Her artistic goal is to create accessible, decorative works of art contagious with joy! She wants us all to know, that, as joy, art is a bold and accessible choice.
