Based in North Yorkshire, Kimberli works expressively and intuitively in acrylics, watercolours, pastels, oil pastels, collage, embossing foil, encaustic wax, found objects, and ink. Kimberli’s self-taught painting technique focuses on spontaneous creativity and not being tied to any one particular outcome.
Her many-layered paintings emerge as bursts of spirited energy and colour. She is inspired by the textures, colours, and forms in the natural world, and specifically by decaying and eroding surfaces. She enjoys taking the viewer through some of her history and the history of the painting by building ideas and textures onto the surface of the painting.
