Artist's Statement

   Kim grew up in Idaho, savoring the outdoors and natural beauty surrounding him. Following art studies at Boise State University, Kim sought a classical wood carving apprenticeship in the Bavarian Alps. Under two master wood sculptors he learned the disciplines of patient diligence and high craftsmanship, and the techniques handed down through generations in Europe.

After five years he returned to the U.S., where collaboration with wood-turners, sculptors and architects led to traditional, contemporary and abstract work. Kimís work in figurative and wildlife sculpture and bas-relief murals can be seen in public locations such as the Mt. St. Helens Visitor Center in Castle Rock, Washington and the Museum of Natural History, Los Angeles, California.

Kimís current sculpture in stone, wood, and cast bronze continues to explore figurative and wildlife themes, often with an abstract approach to emphasize the inherent gesture and energy of the subject.

Kim is a member of the Northwest Stone Sculptors Association and Pacific Northwest Sculptors.
