A lifetime of creating photographically began as a child, after a transformational vision of light. Now her “artist’s paintbrush” is a camera which, not coincidentally, utilizes light and time as its painterly medium. She's had a camera in her hands her entire life.
I believe that art is love made visible. That Awe is a prime emotion given to us by the Creator for its power of transformation. And that the more we experience it, the happier + lighter we become. I believe in discernment, truth, wisdom, strong artistic choices, love and the power of uplifting others.

Photography is me having a chat with the universe. We meet up. We get curious. We ask questions of one another. And the momentwe "click" is the moment my soul's story is exposed in what some call my "work." But the universe and I both know my work is all play.
Fanciers, clients, & collectors say Kim "captures the essence of life with every shot & every breath," She's "authentic," "effervescent!" "generous," "passionate," and "an inspiration."
