Kim Gibbs

Artist Bio

Creativity is a natural overflow of Kim’s passion for beauty in our world. She interprets the world through an expressionistic view using vivid, intense color with emphasis on texture.  Her paintings are filled with energy and vibrancy and explore the use of color with light and application.

As a child, Kim was inspired by her aunt’s three-dimensional art and the wonders of exploring her family’s art store.  While raising her own children, she studied watercolor which opened her eyes to seeing how color reacts to light. From watercolor Kim moved on to working in pastels and acrylics, finally finding oil, her current medium.

Primarily self-taught, Kim has studied with many world class teachers and participated in numerous workshops from Scottsdale to Maine. Her instructors have included Albert Handel, Timothy Horn and Millie Gosch, among others. She is a graduate of the University ofGeorgiaJournalism School. Her large landscapes are in several galleries in the Southeast. Kim paints daily in her studio/gallery in Charlotte, NC.
