Kim is a master at bringing whimsy and fun in to her work, bringing a smile to people faces and enjoyment to those who take them home. This sweet little bird is placed in a stunning field of vivid hues of reds, oranges, and blacks. Kim delicately uses placement of the tiles to create movement and focus and we love the way it puts the spotlight on the subject matter.
Trained as a cartographer, Kim found her gifts were in detail and design. As she began teaching, she discovered that she loved to bring a sense of security and peace to the kids she taught through an inspiring and accepting classroom. Working with many different mediums, she found that the detail work in mosaics was theraputic and helped her students concentrate. Her love for mosaic work continued after she retired from the classroom, training in Italy to build upon her natural talent and improve her tecniques. You can now find her whimsical and striking pieces of art at shops and her online gallery.
