Kimberly Shinn

"It seems like I have been drawing all my life.  The Missouri farming community that I grew up in was my subject matter.  My inspiration still comes from the beauty that surrounds me, be it an awesome sunset, as old barn in a field, or a favorite animal."

Kim has had no formal art training and has learned mainly from trial and error and a desire to capture in some way the beauty that surrounds her.

Her painting style is realistic and her favorite medium is acrylics, but her first love is still putting what she sees on paper with pencil or charcoal.

Creating art is Kim's way of permanently capturing a favorite moment in time or a favorite place or loved one.
