ARTIST STATEMENT

About Kim Coley

Kim Coley uses “visual song writing” as an analogy for the creative process and is interested in the tensions between observation, expression and pragmatism.  

Influences include the philosopher Richard Sennett (author of The Craftsman)  amongst many others.   

She works in ink, charcoal, pastel, oil, collage, household paint, mixed media and print.  

She sells her work from her studio and exhibits widely.

Kim Coley also runs workshops. 

Take a look at her works, and get in touch for more information.

 

“Kim is a painter of great skill in capturing the vivacity of nature through her brushstrokes and energetic mark-making. Her paintings are a record of human energy, spirit and observation. I have always admired her warm professionalism, her sense of humour and commitment as an artist.”

Jonathan Newdick (JN Sculptres)
