MEDIUM: Oil & acrylic paintings
While receiving her bachelor's degree from Purdue's Krannert School of Management, Kim took an Art and Design class every semester as a creative outlet and to foster her love of the arts. She has always loved drawing and being creative and has fond memories of painting on little rocks from Lake Michigan. She had been drawn to impressionism paintings growing up, but did not begin oil painting until her oldest son left for college, as her own "art therapy." Her working career has included positions in marketing and ownership of a design/remodeling company along with her husband. Now that her three children are all getting closer to leaving the nest, Kim is attempting to make painting a bigger part of her life. She has studied at the Art Studio of Carmel under Penny Roberson, and has also been a student of artists Pam Newell and Rita Spalding, all whose work she greatly admires. Kim is thrilled to be a part of the Art on Main gallery in downtown Carmel. ***Why paint? Kim's goal is to help spread a bit of beauty into our everyday busy lives.
