Kim obtained a BA in Fine Arts and Latin American Studies at Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, in 1985. There she studied painting with Paul Georges and Graham Campbell, printmaking with Susan Lichtman, and sculpture with Peter Markman. She used art constantly during her years as a bilingual elementary teacher in Los Angeles, where I lived for 34 years. Kim painted intermittently while raising a family but then started working consistently in acrylics in 2016-17. She began experimenting with abstract and contemporary art, playing with expressionism and lots of color.
Her work has been shown in both Gallery 800 and Carter Sexton Artist’s Materials Gallery, North Hollywood, CA; Gallery N Gifts, Tehatchapi, CA; Pieces Home Décor, Old Saybrook, CT; Spectrum Art Gallery in Centerbrook, CT; and in the Brittany Davis Gallery, Los Angeles, CA.
Kim also has a MA in Marriage and Family Therapy and is currently working in the Home Care field.
