Paintings

Oil painting

We live in a seemingly chaotic world of colours and shapes. When I leave a place and time, it’s the colours that filled that space that stays with me. It’s what inspires me.
Exploring that chaos & luxuriating within it is where I find calm in a painting.

Coffee with Kim

A coffee date podcast

I just want to talk to people while they feel safe in their own home, wearing their pajamas, and barely awake.
If I bring coffee to them, they just might let me in.
A bi-weekly-ish podcast.
