Kim discovered her love for the creative process at a young age. On the advice of family and friends concerned that she have a ‘real career’, Kim completed her degree in psychology before pursuing her real passion – watercolor.
“I started taking art classes and it was so exciting! I loved creating paintings and amazed myself with my accomplishments. The whole process, from the composition to drawing to painting, is thrilling!”
Now fully devoted to her artistic endeavors, Kim’s masterful use of glazes and washes, wet and dry technique, and positive and negative space breathes life into pieces focused on the human and animal experiences. Her award-winning work is enjoyed by both corporate offices and private collectors.
She has expanded her work to include instructional and demonstration sessions.
Title of presentation: Dog Portraiture: Painting Canines with Expression
Description of presentation:
Breathe life into your pups making them come alive! Kim will step you through using contour drawing as a guide, not a border, and how to build form through glazes and washes. You will gain understanding on how the contribution of lights, darks, mid-tones add visual interest; and how to increase value through dynamic shapes and the use of lost and found edges.
