KimberlyKielexpresses herself through a wide variety of subject matter: landscapes andtreescapes; figure pieces andflorals. 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. 2184 Oak Bay Ave, 250-598-2184,www.theavenuegallery.com.
