About the Artist: Katia Von Kral

CLN’s Exclusive Artist is the beautiful Arizona native, Katia Von Kral, also known as . For over 18 years, Katie has been quite successful in sharing her artistic talents for all to see.

Katia Von Kral Fine Art

At an early age, patterns, color, texture, design and intriguing subject matter became her inspiration and she continues to incorporate all of these elements in her work today.

KVK’s natural talent that emerged at this young age progressed over time as she received her bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Arizona State University and catered professionally to high-end residential and corporate markets.

Her art has been featured on television and in magazines such as Phoenix Home and Garden, she has done custom artwork and murals for well-known celebrities and large corporations including Google, Pulte, Del Webb, and she also facilitated the restoration of the 1926 Historic Civic Plaza in downtown Phoenix.

Katie Von Kral - Art by KVKFamous for doing large originals in her own mixed-media/collage style that can be seen at public and private exhibitions and auctions, KVK now makes her past, present, and future pieces available as affordable, limited edition giclées (prints on canvas) in all sizes.

Each piece is unique and original in its own right since they are personally embellished, signed, and numbered by the artist. Art by KVK can be displayed beautifully in many settings as her subject matter and designs cover a wide range to suit many decorative purposes.

In her works, KVK also uses repurposed materials and usually includes an actual envelope, a bird image, and many other charming collaged articles that create everlasting interest and symbolic meaning in her pieces.

From her amazing 1997 collections to the present “Solfege Family Collection” (featured at the world renowned Musical Instrument Museum gift shop) and Cowboys and Instruments Collection, she is gaining recognition as one of the most collectible artists of the 21st century.

Her latest series’ of works which includes the “Cowboys and Instruments Collection” and many other country related pieces are featured in retail stores throughout the West, which gave her the opportunity to be the featured artist of the annual Festival of the West in Scottsdale, AZ in 2013. KVK’s love for country and western things stems from her love for the outdoors, camping, fishing, riding horses, and from other childhood memories with her family in Idaho, Montana, and Nevada.

She is greatly inspired by country music, country dancing, and country musicians, as you will see that in all of her work exists some kind of musical suggestion, even if the subject matter is different. It is also not uncommon to catch KVK admiring the rodeo scene as she is fascinated with those barrel racers, bull riders, and bronc riding folk.

Faith, love, and doing things that she loves are most important to KVK. “My career dream is to be able to do all of the things I love simultaneously: to continue to create my own originals and custom pieces in my style that bring my collectors great joy, to be able to travel, expand my market, fans, and collector base through shows and networking in different states, and to help others through the sales of my work,” says KVK. It is very possible that this gypsy, artist, cowgirl’s soul will drive her to her next artistic destination towards achieving that dream.

Today, KVK has managed to keep her dream alive but not without a fight. The auto-immune disease, called endometriosis, affects over 176 million women worldwide, including KVK. 30-40% of them cannot have children and suffer from EXTREME pain!
