Kimberly Kiel expresses herself through a wide variety of subject matter; landscapes, treescapes, figure pieces and florals. She loves the creaminess and long drying time of oil paint, allowing her the opportunity to blend.
"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." - Kimberly Kiel
