Kim graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of art and design, in 2001. After exhibiting in several galleries, she began freelancing as a design consultant, which took her to Russia, France, Italy and New York.
In 2002 she became a Postgraduate student studying on the Masters of Fine Art programme at Duncan of Jordanstone, ending December 2003.
Her practice is visually led, encompassing painting, photography, film and text, and in June 2010 collaborated with the influential Italian artist Mauro Betti and exhibited with Galleria Tornabuoni in Florence. She has continued to paint and exhibit her work in the UK, Italy and Dubai.
Regardless of whether she is painting, taking photographs or making short films, her work seems to be steeped in fantasy and nostalgia, collected pieces from the past. Abstraction and metaphysical paintings with shapes and colours have always had their own emotional force and it is this form of painting which excites her the most.
‘My Father was of Italian origin and my Mother was Scottish; both have been a huge influence on my work.’
