Kimberly Meuse

April 5, 2021 - April 30, 2021

Kimberly is self-taught in her style of watercolor painting, after an introductory course in college where she studied Graphic Design opened the door to the wonders and challenges of the medium. The graphic design world focuses on simplifying messages, while Kimberly’s eye consistently sought the finer points and sumptuous detail. After a decade of working in corporate design, she followed her heart to fine art and watercolor.

Taking watercolor painting from a generally loose methodology to create works that defy the confines of representational painting, she has surmounted the challenges inherent in water-based media to create exquisitely deep, rich paintings that have become a career-long passion.

​”There is something calming, tranquil, absorbing about still life. The eye pours over the textures and lines, absorbs every nuance of hues and values, and distinguishes the interplay of shadow versus light over the surface of a petal. Still life draws you in. It forces you to step forward and drink it all in. Details so fine that the trick is to determine if it’s a photograph – and if not, how is it watercolor?”
