As a successful designer and maker of architectural stained glass Kim ran her own studio from 1997 to 2010. Her work can be seen in many churches as well as public and private buildings throughout the UK. Her training included a Diploma in Architectural Stained Glass at the prestigious Swansea School and a Masters Degree at York University, together with residencies at The Victoria and Albert Museum and the stained glass studios of the Cathedrals of York and Canterbury.
Her fascination with light and colour has led Kim to explore the potential of oil paints to achieve images that capture mood and invite the viewer into the painting. She paints both en plein air and also in her home-based studio, in both oil and watercolours.
