Kim is a graphic designer (BEd, B.Des) and fine artist from Niagara, Ontario with an extensive consumer product background in the cycling and toy industry. From her home studio she provides local and international clients with design excellence taking on the form of product graphics, brand identities, marketing collateral, packaging and illustration. She also is constantly working on fine art pieces for display, purchase and commission.
“As an artist and outdoor enthusiast, I am extremely conscious of the materials and processes used in my artwork. Most or if not all of my pieces use recycled canvases, old latex house paint, mis-tints or some other reused component. It gives me a great sense of accomplishment to repurpose unwanted discarded and damaged items from thrift stores by turning them into new artworks. Working with acrylics, latex paint, inks and other mixed media keeps me busy in the studio. My style is a fusion of my graphic design and fine arts training. It is always evolving as I am forever in the creative space experimenting with new techniques and constantly learning. I am in a continuous search for new creative challenges as they can produce some unique opportunities.”
Her artwork is available on a variety of products, visit her redbubble store to see what's new. When not pushing paint or pixels, Kim is on the trails mountain biking, skiing or chasing the wind on her windsurfer.
