Kim finds inspiration in everything from animals and growing things to patterns and 20th-century design.

 

Hometown and school: My hometown is Sylvania, Ohio. I studied at the Columbus College of Art and Design.

 

Inspiration: The incredible 20th-century design that advanced the common aesthetic.

 

Themes I’m drawn to: Growing things—flowers, fruit, and foliage. Also animals and patterns—anything that gives me the opportunity to stylize shapes into something fun and clever.

 

Best advice: Learn to identify, value, and develop what I do naturally. My most successful work has always started there.

 

Happy place (when I’m being creative): I like a quiet, fairly ordered space that I can feel free to mess up.

Favorite work of art (so far): The paper decorations—they are a perfect mix of design and illustration, and really reveal who I am as an artist. They were so, so fun to work out—the hours just flew by.

 

When I’m not working: I’m married to a wonderful man who is also an artist, and we have three adult children, who are all creative in different ways. In my free time I like to garden, cook and entertain. I also design and sew things made from upcycled, felted wool.
