Kim Kori at Rowe Gallery
Having spent her childhood in a lush farming area of Pennsylvania, Kim’s relationship with nature began early. She used the farmland behind her home as the backdrop of her many forays into childhood fantasy. Exploring in the fields and pastures was a frequent pastime. She would then use the inspiration she found to create and illustrate stories. A fond memory is sitting with her grandfather as he admired her drawings and told her that she had a good imagination.
Primarily self-taught and still eager to continue perfecting her skills, Kim combines her boundless love of travel and nature with studying, sketching and photographing the flora and fauna in the various regions she visits.
Surrounded by majestic landscape and abundant wildlife in Sedona, Arizona, Kim continues to use her lively imagination to entwine magic with reality and show us nature through her eyes in the sculptures she creates.
Kim is a signature member of the Society of Animal Artists and American Women Artists. Her award winning work is in numerous private collections and public venues throughout the world.
