Featured Abstract Artist: Kathy Kimball

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

Before Seattle artist Kathy Kimball turned to abstract art, she was illustrating children's books,  including "The Wonderful Counting Clock" written by Cooper Edens and produced by Simon and Schuster in 1995. These days she makes abstract paintings on canvas, often using mixed media such as collage, oil pastel, conte crayon, and acrylic paint.

Kathy often combines geometric and organic forms, developing transparency, light, and texture to present the complexity of perception.  In her artist's statement, she says that "finding the balance between structure and the choice for spontaneous play is an ongoing challenge."
