BIO

KATI BUJNA FINE ART STUDIO, owned by Kati Bujna, artist, art and decor consultant, art advocate.

BIOGRAPHY

My personal legacy with art and its uplifting effects on people in their living spaces began with the collection of Impressionist era paintings in my grandmother’s home.

During the 1920s, she was superintendent of an artist colony outside of Budapest, Hungary, and was often paid rent with paintings and etchings. This extensive collection of early art works from painters, which later became nationally famous, are displayed in our family's homes and continue to connect me to my love of family heritage, art history and my devotion to artist advocacy.

Throughout my marketing and graphic design career travelling throughout North America and the Caribbean, it's always a privilege to meet and collaborate with visual artists and innovators from many cultures and industries. Throughout my life experiences and graduate art studies at Sheridan College, Fanshawe College, the Haliburton School of The Arts, and most recently studying Interior Decorating at Conestoga College, helping people create joyful and visually engaging living and working environments - matters to me.

Today, I live inspired and surrounded by “the legendary trees of old Galt” in Cambridge, Ontario with my fiancé Ron and our pet dog, a Chinese Crested hairless puppy named Scarlett No’Hara.
