Kimberly graduated from UMass Dartmouth with a BFA in 1981. She majored in printmaking and worked with several print co-ops in the Boston area. She completed her masters degree in education at Bridgewater State College and taught elementary art for 25 years in the Florida Keys. She also enjoys teaching painting to adults.
Her love of nature and concern for the environment has led her to create several large community based sculptures of endangered creatures using recycled and up cycled materials collected by the community and assembled by local children.
While broadening her scope from crayons and tempera paint to acrylic and oils she has studied with Patti Mollica, Nancie King Mertz, Manon Sander, Colley Whisson and David Lussier. As her style evolves toward Contemporary Impressionism, she hopes to retain the playfulness and awe of discovery she shared with her students throughout the years.
