Kim Lewis, a self taught artist, was born and raised in Pennsylvania. Growing up in a family of antique collectors gave her an appreciation for older things from a simpler time which she tries to incorporate into her artwork.
She, her husband Gary and their two dogs live in a small historic town along the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. They have 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren. They enjoy being a close family and get together often.
From making paper dolls as a small girl to doing art projects with her grandchildren, Kim has loved art for as long as she can remember. For several years she, along with her mother and daughter, ran a small home-based business selling country signs on a retail and wholesale level. It was a great learning experience. Mass-producing hand painted items became overwhelming. Painting just wasn't fun anymore. Kim put her business away, but her love of art drew her back to painting.
"I truly love what I do, from my first pencil sketch to the last brush stroke on the painting. I get so involved in my work that even when I pull myself away to do household chores my paintings go with me from room to room. Sometimes just a glance gives me an idea or brings attention to a small detail that just isn't quite right. My husband also lives with my artwork and for this I must thank him. He is also very supportive and always encouraging. He is genuinely interested in what I do."
Kim's artwork is now available as open addition prints and for licensing through Sagebrush Fine Art in Salt Lake City, Utah.
