Kim 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.
Since moving to Old Saybrook, Connecticut in 2002, Kim has immersed herself in observing and interpreting New England’s shoreline, from Stoney Creek to Cape Cod. She and her husband are active sailors and members of the North Cove Yacht Club in Old Saybrook.
For the past ten years Kim has painted exclusively in oils. Her style is impressionistic, directly inspired by what she sees and feels outdoors. She usually does small plein air studies first, converting them to larger paintings in the studio. She has strong brush strokes and an appreciation for color, light and the effects of weather. She has sold her work in several one person shows and in galleries in New York City, Maryland, Virginia and Connecticut. Her work has also been exhibited in juried shows in Connecticut and Arizona.
Kim’s background is eclectic. She earned a BA in German literature and MFA in applied psychology. Twenty years of ceramics including a year in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and many years at the Maryland Institute College of Art as ceramics student and graphics instructor. Thirty years in journalism as writer, editor, then an art director.
