About Kim:

 

I have been creating art since I was a small child.  Art was my passion as far back as I can remember.  I literally began painting with oils at age seven, when my parents enrolled me in Saturday morning oil painting class at a local art supply store with a bunch of adults.  Okay, I was just painting dinosaurs, horses and Peanuts characters, but hey, I was only seven!  That was when I really starting identifying myself as an artist and knew that art was my greatest strength.  I had big dreams of becoming a Disney studio cartoonist.  I was probably the only girl in my class that wanted to become something other than a teacher or nurse.  I was the stereotypical “artist in the classroom” throughout grade school, and in eighth grade, was awarded a scholarship to attend Herron Art School’s Saturday art classes.  Again, I was the only little kid with a bunch of college students, but I really loved the class!  Ahhh… I can still smell the turpentine.

 

Faced with adult responsibilities, I worked in several different professions to pay the bills, but spent my free time drawing or painting.  When I married my husband, who is in the military, we moved to Alaska, Texas, and Fayetteville, North Carolina. While there, I enrolled in an evening painting class which reignited my interest in oil painting.  I have been painting consistently since.

 

My husband and I now live in central North Carolina.  Since moving here, I opened and managed an art gallery; created and directed an after school art program;  taught art lessons privately and conducted adult art classes at the Arts Council and Artists League of the Sandhills. I also taught art lessons to persons with intellectual disabilities and teens at risk.  Presently, I conduct painting workshops around the country. 

I am currently a full time artist and work out of my home studio.
