Although her main passion is watercolour for its luminosity and vibrancy, Kim loves the challenge of experimenting with all media to create a variety of eclectic colourful, ethereal, moody, dramatic or soft and subdued paintings. Her style is constantly evolving as she exeriments with different media and subject material. She has tried her hand at pastel and acrylics, and doesn’t mind using mixed media to realise an idea. Kim loves to use bold rich colour to capture the light, colours and mood of the subject. Kim finds inspiration from everyday life and the beauty of things that are sometimes taken for granted. Kim is very passionate about creating individual and exciting artworks by allowing the painting to develop as she paints it.
Kim has been very fortunate to attend many workshops by very talented local and international artists, and has a wonderful mentor. For Kim, painting has always been an adventure and a pleasure. Kim has learnt some valuable techniques and skills and combines them with her natural abilities and her passion for art to create original artworks.
Kim lives in Port Macquarie, with her husband and three small children, she is working and studying Fine Art and Visual Culture and has recently qualified as a Graphic Designer, so life is very busy. With the encouragement of her mentor and support of her family, Kim has recently been able to devote more time to her art and is often seen with pencil or brush in hand. She always enjoys sharing art and her individual creations with her family as well as others. Kim is a member and regular exhibitor of the Hastings Valley Fine Art Association and her work can be inspected at her home Studio/Gallery where everyone is welcome by appointment or at the Hastings Valley Fine Art Gallery.
