Kimberly Kiel was born in Saskatchewan in 1972.She started her painting career at the age of 31 while living in Calgary. Lured by the wide open spaces of her home province, in 2008 she moved back to Saskatchewan and now resides, with her husband and two sons, on an acreage near her hometown.

Kimberly received a Bachelor of Administration from the University of Regina in 1994.Upon graduation, she launched a successful Financial Planning career based out of Regina.In the 1990's she left Saskatchewan for the greener pastures of Calgary, AB and continued building her financial planning practice for the next decade.In 2003, she decided it was time for a change and sold her practice to take up life as an artist.While predominately self taught, early on in her career she benefited greatly from the mentoring offered by several other artists.

Having always had a love for creating things - for music, for dance - she found one of her greatest passions when she applied paintbrush to canvas for the first time; and finds as much joy in the process as in the end product.

"For me creating art is a passion.A celebration of the joy and colour to be found in life."

Kimberly's business experience and entrepreneurial sprit have served her well. Her artwork is currently showcased and sold in galleries from British Columbia to Quebec, as well as in Switzerland.It can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.

Kimberly expresses herself through a wide variety of subject matter; landscapes & treescapes; figure pieces & florals.She loves the creaminess of oil, the opportunity to blend, the fact that it doesn’t dry too quickly.Looking at her work, it's obvious that colour is a major source of inspiration.She greatly enjoys playing around with the surface on the canvas, getting different layers and textures.

"I paint as an expression of joy and energy. It is pure delight to squeeze out huge piles of oil paint, squish it around, have it blend, meld, combine.Wet paint, layer upon layer, morphing into a tangible and interesting surface - thick, creamy, an array of gorgeous impasto marks.I strive to leave much to the imagination, for the viewer to fill in the blanks.To go from a blank, white canvas to one filled with brilliant, glorious colour.- there is a huge sense of satisfaction in that.'

She acknowledges that her goal is to create something subjective, intriguing and stimulating.She wants her art to touch and engage heart, mind and soul.

As an artist, Kimberly is energetic outgoing and charming, just like the paintings she creates.Her full-of-life attitude perfectly depicts her creations.
