Oil Paintings, Portraits, and 3D Paper Mache
McKinney, Texas, artist Kim Guthrie seeks to delight people with the humorous, “tongue in cheek” approach she uses in creating her art. Classically trained, Kim attended the School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston, the University of Colorado in Boulder, and the Institute of Art in Lacoste, France. She spent a good part of her career in the southern United States, creating intricate Fresco style murals for both individual and corporate clients. The demanding work of varied subjects and mediums molded the gifted artist that she is today. Her childlike wonder of life and her compulsion for personal inspiration was fulfilled through classes in the latest artistic mediums.
Over the past decade, Kim has turned her focus to primarily creating whimsical oil paintings, portraits, and 3D Paper Mache characters. Kim has quickly gained a reputation for her versatility, talent, and warm wit. She enjoys a following of avid collectors who can’t wait to see what she’ll produce next.
“My style,” admits Kim, “is to create intuitively, when inspiration strikes. I strive for less structure, and more fun! I’m thinking that’s how life should be as well.”
