Over the past few years she has developed and produced a line of fine art and fine craft items including felted sculptures, wearable art, and unique home decor items; many available online. Most recently Kim has created a collection of surface designs for use in apparel, home textiles, or gift and paper goods markets. This collection is ideal for interior designers, publishers, product developers, or retail customers looking for unique and/or custom fabric and repeat patterns.
Artist's statement: I'm a designer and mixed-media artist living and working in Grand Canyon National Park. I love making items for gift and home that delight others and celebrate our natural world. The forest is my muse and the canyon is a constant inspiration. I am most happy when working with my hands and do so in gratitude.
As an artist, I am constantly developing new problems to solve in the studio. I love the creative process and allow my art to continually grow and change. This way of working is as organic as my chosen subject matter. While professionally I'd like to get more of my surface designs into the marketplace, I'll continue to explore in the studio with fiber and paint. Everything seems to inform everything else in a life, so the plan is to just keep loving, living and making!
Location: Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA
