Kim’s art experience has been largely influenced by the work of the late 19th, early 20th century painters. The ability to observe, investigate and draw has been the foundation of all his work, with a firm Ruskin-type belief that drawing is the cornerstone of art, to communicate through the use of line and tone those essential elements that make being an artist a delight and priviledge. Early on in his career, he became very interested in seascapes and landscapes, using the influence of his time in the Royal Navy and his rural existence once he left. Kim is a watercolour painter, with his own unique way of using the medium, as you can see from the paintings for sale. He occasionally uses oils, but finds the medium less immediate. He is now resident in Dorset and centres his painting in Dorset and nearby counties.
