Growing up, Kim fancied herself as a sculptor, but did not take her artistic side seriously and pushed away any desire to create. Instead, she received a degree in Psychology and started a career in counseling for children with challenges. It took her decades to give herself a second chance.
While living in France for sixteen years, she met a fantastic artist/art teacher who taught her everything she knew about art. For years, Kim explored every medium available and immersed herself in other artists' universe, devouring art books and hunting down art shows from the most obscure exhibits in tiny villages to the most famous ones in prestigious urban art galleries and museums.
Kim paints fiercely daily, using brushes, tools with a sharp edge, and texture in most of her paintings. She includes natural elements found on her walks from time to time.
Kim draws inspiration from her imagination allowing it to dictate each painting. Each of her pieces are unique and recognizable through her usage of bold colors and textures.
She paints spontaneously, without planning, trusting that the work will lead her somewhere compatible with her sense of aesthetics. The colors and shapes she creates are meant to allow viewers to use their imagination and produce their own interpretation of her work.
To renew her energy, Kim returns to her main sources of inspiration: architecture, nature, and other artists such as Le Caravage, Francis Bacon, Viera Da Silva, Gustav Klimt, Jackson Pollock and her revered master: Zao Wou-Ki.
