Growing up on a farm in Maryland, Kim has always loved nature, being outdoors and sailing the Chesapeake Bay. She has painted hundreds of scenes of the Bay, Havre de Grace’s Thursday night races, as well as the more tranquil scenes of the Eastern Shore’s tidal rivers. Kim has immersed herself in observing and interpreting New England’s shoreline from Stoney Creek to Cape Cod. Kim has painted in oils for the last ten years. Since affiliating with Old Lyme’s Center for Early American Impressionists, Kim has increased her focus on representational painting. She often paints small plein air studies, which she uses for inspiring works up to five feet. Her works are rich with feeling and broad strokes of color.
