About the Artist: Kim Casebeer's interest in art dates back to her early childhood. Kim's first art sale was a landscape she sold for through a 4-H event when she was in the 6th grade. Art continued to be a part of her life through high school, and she enrolled in the graphic design program at Kansas State University, where she received her B.A. in Fine Arts in 1992. She worked as a graphic designer and art director, while spending evenings and weekends painting. In 2002, she was able to make the leap to full-time artist.
Kim believes artists should paint what they know and love. She grew up on a farm in south-central Kansas near the Flint Hills, so she naturally gravitates toward the landscape. She uses outdoor studies and photographic material as a starting point, and then focuses on using light and color to convey the emotional reaction she has to her subject. Emotionally connecting to her audience is the ultimate goal.
