Kim is an experienced printmaker who uses collagraph, a textured form of hand pulled printing. Her particular technique involves many different components on her printing plates and unusual hand embellishing on the resulting original prints. Kim’s influences have always been about Man’s connection to the Earth and she studies Ancient civilizations, philosophy and sacred sites. Her current work is about Land Traces in all its forms, seen and unseen, from the long trails used by migrating animals and birds to the obvious rock formations displayed from ancient geological activities on the planet as recounted in ancient texts.
The themes of her collections are inspired by thought provoking poems, which often accompany her artwork, Ancient civilisations and their related narratives.
She exhibits up and down the country in solo and group exhibitions with an extensive exhibition planned for later in the year with a few other artists in Derby, entitled ‘Fragile Lands’.
She is the author of three technical books on collagraph, with a fourth book to be published later this year.
Kim works on her collections throughout the year from her purpose built studio in North Buckinghamshire. She organises textured collagraph workshops for students of all ages and abilities – experienced printmakers and those who have never worked with hand pulled printing before. She is a member of the Buckinghamshire Art Society and acts as Membership Secretary.
