About the artist....
There was always a creative longing in Kim. From her earliest days she was searching for her creative purpose until ten years ago when she picked up a paintbrush and knew that the search was over; she had found what she was made to do.
Largely self-taught until her move to Europe, Kim has been fortunate to have been mentored by some of the world's best artists, including Arantzazu Martinez, Eloy Morales, David Kassan and Cesar Santos.
About the art....
Her technique combines her love of the academic method with the need to convey classic themes in a modern context. Using unconventional models, she does not idealise beauty but represents it from the soul outwards.
Kim’s art reflects the inner life. Connecting emotion with form, the viewer is invited to look deeper within the painting, and indeed within themselves. Drawn deeper into the image and the underlying message portrayed, audiences see that Kim’s paintings evoke a radiant joy, self-examination, a depth of soul, and a challenge to contemplate the enduring story of humanity’s longing for hope.
Kim’s art can be found all over the world in private collections, and has been exhibited in numerous countries, including the Museo Europeo del Arte Moderno (MEAM) in Barcelona. Recently, "Poured Out" achieved an Honorable Mention in the Figurative category of the Art Renewal Center’s 2017 Salon competition.
