Hi my name is Kym. I have been a professional artist for more than 30 years. Until recently I painted strictly paintings to sell. I have many customers who asked me over the years to do a commission for them. I have reached that point in my career where I am doing just that. You can visit my commission page for a special painting of your choosing or if you have a beloved pet why not take a look at my pet portrait page. I will work personally with you every step of the way. And don't forget to sign up for my email list below so I can update you about what is on the easel and any promotions I may be offering. I will have a one woman show in June. The date will be announced at a later time. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
My show June 15th was a huge success. I wish to thank Summer at JJill in Johnson City, TN for giving me this opportunity to show my work in this area. She was so gracious and should be commended for her hard work to do this. She provided delicious refreshments and helped me setting up and during the show. The lighting in her shop was superb to show my colors too. I never turn down a chance to show my art and this was a brand new avenue. She is supporting local artists and we are planning another one in October. Please check my Events Page for more photos.
Shiloh was my beagle mix rescue. This oil is not quite finished but I wanted to put it on my website on the one year anniversary of me losing her, June 12, 2018. I still have the detail in her fur and face to finish. The pond behind her is a pond above my house and she is sitting in my day lilies. I put both photos together. I didn't get that many good photos of her to paint because I thought I would have her for a very long time. I only had her a little more than a year and a half and it took me more than a year to get her untied from a tree. She was only five when we discovered she had advanced lung cancer and within a week I had to say goodbye. This photo captures her sweet personality.
Whether it be a nature or seascape oil original or a commissioned painting I will work with you on every order. Want to read more about me before ordering? Why not Visit my About The Artist page. If you want to read about all of my rescues who have inspired my art all of my life you can go here.
I have spent many years capturing details with my brush. For many years I used watercolors and then I switched to oils. No matter what I have in my hand I can paint the finest little things that need to be put in a painting. Here you see me using an Escoda liner size 1. That is a really tiny brush. I have four of these brushes and since I use portrait linen I can get the tiniest detail in my painting.
