Kim began sculpting over 25 years ago and has traveled extensively throughout the Northwest and Southwest researching native wildlife and culture. Inspired by the nature around her, her sculptures reflect a fascination with the high desert, wildlife and sensitivity to the environment. A self-taught artist, countless hours are spent designing and sculpting each piece. Her style combines simplicity, stylized lines combined and fine detail. Each sculpture is further enhanced with earth toned patinas. Kim’s studio is located in Central Oregon where she gathers much of her inspiration. She is a member of Pacific Northwest Sculptors and Women Artists of the West.
