Kimberly's art journey began in the late 1980's when she enrolled in a ceramic class. After filling their home with statues and sculptures, her husband encouraged her to enroll in various art and drawing courses. This is where she found her love of painting and consequently her passion for oil painting. Her art has taken her to Italy and throughout the United States. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America. Her art is in private collections throughout the Midwest. She has studied with Decorative Artists Mary Jo Leisure and Fine Artist Elizabeth Robbins.
