With love and friendship, Kimberly would like to respectfully acknowledge the Ktunaxa, Secwépemc, and Sinixt peoples, whose beautiful unceded lands she was raised on and where she lives, works, and paints. This love, respect, and acknowledgement extend to the Métis who have chosen this land as home. Kimberly feels it an honour to learn and grow together through listening and engagement on the path forward to Truth and Reconciliation.
Kimberly attended Alberta College of Art and Design in the late 90’s and Graduated with a Bachelor of Design in 2002. In her final year at ACAD, her work was featured in Canada’s Applied Arts Magazine.
Early in her career, she worked in-house at design agencies, and as a freelance illustrator. After travel, she stepped away from the Applied Arts, and jumped into the sculptural field of carpentry and residential home construction for 8 years.
With a need to return more fully to her roots in the visual arts, she was selected as one of the Artists to participate in ‘Art in the Park’ 125 years of Glacier National Park and Yoho National Park. From there she coordinated private art classes, including a portraiture and mixed media workshop for Leah Evan’s Female Youth Program: ‘Circle In.’ Kimberly has been a speaker at PechaKucha at Key City Theatre on her Art and Process, and has been the Artist in Residence at Pynelogs Cultural Centre in Invermere, BC for the past 5 years.
Deeply drawn into understanding the mechanisms of the body and mind, she thoroughly studies and practices the eastern healing arts of Thai Massage and Yoga in which she runs her own business alongside her Visual Arts.
Private Collections of her work can be found throughout North America.
