Kim Valentine is an Ottawa born multidisciplinary artist.
Starting as a child collecting buttons, & mostly garbage of interesting character, Kim always felt the need to make and create. The appetite may have been real, but there was no calling to anything in particular.
So she tried everything... macrame, knitting, drawing. Taking real pleasure in each new creative endeavour, she experimented ever more with her own creativity. When she began to paint, A new passion for art was born, and her fear of trying new mediums started to melt away, and in its place a desire for further exploration was born.
Kim creates art & art events from (and in) her home studio, affectionately called The Artery.

Daycamps for Creatives, Life & Death Drawing, Creative Circles...
There's space for you in Ottawa's creative community.
Yoga with Kim
Classes coming soon
I love yoga. I love that the moment you surrender to the breath and become present in a posture, it's time to dig a little deeper.
Yoga helped me release my body from discomfort, and my mind from wandering. (mind wandering is a constant work in progress). I wanted to become a yoga teacher to share those benefits with others.
I teach classes that are both playful and nurturing.
Creating challenging sequences to get your breath flowing,
so that your mind can rest.
Classes are coming soon,
and then we should roll out our mats and play.
