My work is sculptural in nature, non-functional and highly intuitive.
Kimberly was drawn to making unusual things at an early age. In the sixties she made edible bugs and worms with Mattel’s Incredible Edibles - watching for hours as the heated gel hardened into permanent objects.
Today she explores darker topics: mental asylums, school shootings, silencing women, the refugee plight and domestic violence. Her message is conveyed through eerie porcelain sculptures - a much more finicky medium than gel.
After a 25-year marketing career Kimberly recently graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a BFA to pursue her dream of becoming a full time artist.
In 2020, her first solo show, hush, was featured at the John J. McDonough Museum in Youngstown, OH. For 2021, solo shows are booked at Ohio's Mansfield Art Gallery and Ashland University's Coburn Gallery. Her work continues to be juried into numberous gallery and museum exhibitions.
