About Kim Kimbro

Los Angeles-based painter Kim Kimbro creates psychologically charged animal portraiture that is characterized by bold color combinations and sensitively rendered subjects. Stylistically, Kimbro operates somewhere between the real and the unreal, creating an atmosphere that invites personal introspection. Her concern is to convey the frailty of human experience within these often life-sized portraits.

Kim Kimbro received a BFA from the Parsons School of Design/New School for Social Research in New York, and has been exhibiting since 2007. Her paintings can be found in private collections throughout North and South America, Europe and Australia.
