Charis DeRemer

“My paintings are about being fully lost in something, about dreaming. I seek to create beauty, mystery and narrative, calling you to wonder and be inspired to make up the rest of the story behind each picture in your own mind.”

Charis grew up in beautiful and strange Santa Cruz, CA, and went on to study traditional illustration along with entertainment design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Upon graduating (BFA 2005) she interned at Film Roman, the animation company that produces “The Simpsons” and “King of the Hill”. She loved it but longed to be in Northern California again, where she returned to further pursue her passions by teaching, painting, designing, and quenching her love for entertainment with the occasional film project through 2010. While still in the Bay Area frequently, and popping into KALEID whenever she can, in 2011 she moved to the island of Oahu with her new hubby, beginning the next great adventure and now painting in a new paradise… She is proud to have exhibited in Santa Cruz, San Jose, Carmel, San Francisco, LA, Boston, Hale’iwa, and Honolulu.
