KIMA Studios, Artist Kim Richards

As many in the art field, I’ve always drawn and painted – starting at a young age like most.  Through the years, I've dabbled in a variety of visual professions from graphic design, to web design, to decorative painting.  I've also spent time creating illustrations for children. I enjoy seeing children's faces light up when they resonate with an illustration in a picture book or on a screen, and I want my illustrations to do the same.

 

Fortunately, I have a great test market by my side - my own children.  I have two children in elementary school and one preparing for college.  They provide a plethora of ideas, inspiration and critique. Creating fine art works, using traditional mediums such as oils and acrylics, will always be my first love.
