Kim graduated from the University of Sussex, where she studied English literature and art. She's said on her personal blog that she "can't remember a time" when she didn't "turn to either paints or pencils as a means of release."
While she covers everything in her paintings, she admits, "I love animals and have come to relish portraying family pets. Everyone I know treats their pet as an extension of themselves, so I like to think I produce quirky yet emotive paintings that effectively capture what it is we treasure most in our furry companions."
She also owns two dogs of her own, a pair of Border Terriers named Maggie and Rusty.
