Having spent her childhood in a lush farming area of Pennsylvania, Kim’s relationship with nature began early. She used the farmland behind her home as the backdrop of her many forays into childhood fantasy. Exploring in the fields and pastures was a frequent pastime. She would then use the inspiration she found to create and illustrate stories. A fond memory is sitting with her Grandfather as he admired her drawings and told her that she had a good imagination.
Primarily self-taught and still eager to continue perfecting her skills, Kim combines her boundless love of travel and nature with studying, sketching and photographing the flora and fauna in the various regions she visits.
Surrounded by majestic landscape and abundant wildlife in Northern Arizona, Kim continues to use her lively imagination to entwine magic with reality and show us nature through her eyes in the sculptures she creates.
“My life is all about nature, exploring distant lands and imagination. I try to combine all these elements in my sculptures often transporting the viewer to a special place between the believable and the unbelievable where magic is entwined with reality.”
