CREATIVE DIRECTOR SPECIALIZING IN PRESENTATION DESIGN AND STORYTELLING
Ciao. I'm Kimberly, AKA

2009 - 2020
block prints on paper
I found my love of printmaking at Kendall College of Art and Design in 2004. I was transitioning out of a tattoo artist apprenticeship at the time and simply wanted to see what else was out there for me. So I attended a portfolio review at KCAD with a friend and the rest is history! I was accepted as a student the same day on a merit based scholarship. The faculty hear my cries of confusion and helped me find my place in the art world. Printmaking! It quickly became my passion in 2004 and is close to my heart to this day. I began a sabbatical in 2018 to attend graduate school but have plans to revamp the shop in the very near future.
1994 - Present
I've been writing since 1994 on the regular. I was gifted a journal at a birthday party and haven't put my pen down since! My work here has led me to blog posts, articles, scripts, essays, and many more. Take a look at some of my favorite commercial write ups.
