September's Artist is Kimberly Grace. Artist reception will be held Monday, October 15 at 6:00 pm. Art will be displayed October 1-31.
Art has been an important part of my life from an early age. As a young girl growing up in Ohio my father taught me basic art techniques and instilled in me a love of drawing and painting. I attended BYU where I broadened my scope and graduated with a BA in art. I have been studying, teaching and working in the art field for over 30 years.
After graduating I moved to Sacramento, California where I met and married my husband and we raised our four boys. I continued refining my art skills at American River and Sierra Colleges taking diverse classes such as watercolor, ceramics, jewelry, casting, historical costuming, stage makeup, and sculpting trying to decide which media I wanted to focus on. In the end I found that I love incorporating a variety of materials and techniques and consider myself a mixed media artist. I was fortunate to be a part of the High Hand Gallery in Loomis, California where I found a creative “family” who inspired and pushed me to be a better artist. In addition to creating my own artwork I enjoy teaching and received arts integration training through the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission.
Three years ago with my boys grown and pursuing their own paths, my husband and I moved to American Fork. We enjoy fixing up our new home, teaching, traveling, hiking and spending time with family and friends. I am excited for this new stage of our lives as I continue to figure out who I am as an artist.
