About this pro


I am an artist for life!

But right now 

I am in the middle of a family crisis.

My father is in ICU with dementia at presby main.

And I am trying my best to keep up the bills and and houses.

Please be patient with me.

I am known as Miss Kimmie to most people I know. I have taught a combination of pre k, art and manners for as long as I can remember.

I am a hands on teacher you have to immerse yourself into art. I have learned many different techniques of art and design throughout my lifetime. If you're not having fun ... you're not doing it right. If you're not making a mess ... you're not enjoying the process.

Let all the influences of other media and people go away.

Art is like a journey. It's what you see and how you perceive yourself in the world around you.

No matter what medium I work with 

I let go of all rules and regulations and outside influences and what people think. 

That's for when you are in the gallery standing behind someone trying to explain your art to someone else and have no clue what they are talking about. People see what they want .
