Kimberlys education and background lie in Graphic Design and Illustration. In 2012 she left this career to paint full time and earned gallery representation in Vancouve r. After a few exhibitions she began experimenting with the fluidity of paint and colour harmony in a more abstract manner and a new series of “poured work” emerged. Kimberly teaches visual arts to adults and children in her community. As an artist and instructor at the Port Mood y Arts Centre she believes it is necessary to push the mind to think differently. She continues to exhibit her work regularly in group and solo exhibitions in B.C. and Alberta.
