About Aline Kala
Aline Kala is a self-taught painter who uses painting as a way to connect to her past, her culture, and her life. Born in France from Polish immigrant parents, Aline Kala spent many years in the South of France, in a village called Puissalicon, near Montpellier.
Many of her paintings recapture the beauty and colors of her region, the Languedoc-Roussillon. She visited Chapel Hill for the first time in 1981, and met her husband that summer. She received degrees from both UNC-Chapel Hill and the Watts School of Nursing and was working as a nurse at UNC Health Care. She recently retired and is painting more.
She and her husband live in Chatham County, near Pittsboro. Aline Kala continues to paint and experiment using various media. She was a member of the North Carolina Watercolor Society and is the proud recipient of two awards received during their annual competition.
