About the Artist
Kimberly is a multidisciplinary artist, who makes visual stories from dreams and stories intuitively layering color to create imagery, offering the beauty of spontaneity and the element of surprise. Her work was shown at the Huntsville Museum of Art, and the Wiregrass Biennial. She received a BA from the University of Alabama, Huntsville.
Her studio space is located on the second floor in the Barking Dog Arts, #256, of Lowe Mill Arts and Entertainment, now America's largest independent center for the arts.
I combine mono printing with mixed media to build up layers of pattern and shape to uncover the mysteries of dream and memory. Each piece begins life as a monoprint, built by intuitively layering color to create imagery, offering the beauty of spontaneity and the element of surprise. The mono-printing is not so much used as a printing technique but as another tool, allowing me to subtly form layers, which develop complexity, tension, and richness. I add more color and shape with layers of paper, paint, and wax, overlaying the piece with symbols and meaning. The layering lends itself to the ambiguity of the subconscious, which in turn creates a visual dialogue between the viewer and the work, letting the viewer bring her interpretation to each piece.
