Paintings With Soul

Since October 2006 I've been a daily painter, creating a new pet portrait at least 5 times per week. Over the years I've expanded my offerings to include a variety of animals, pets, race horses, children and other treasured heirlooms. In addition, I accept a limited number of commissions each year.

In 2015 I am honored to be the Kentucky Derby Artist.

You may use the links below right to receive my daily paintings via email or to follow my blog with a feed. I post additional info, including in-process jpgs and other related information, on the studio Facebook page as well.

Meanwhile, thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

Holiday Specials


Two messages from me inside one month - I know, this is a little crazy! 

The holidays are upon us, and can kick and scream all you want, but that doesn't change the calendar. So I thought I'd take a moment and share a few gift ideas for fellow artists, animal lovers, and fans of my artwork to help gets lists started.

But first, we've all seen the meme about small businesses, right? That buying from a small business is buying dance lessons for a young princess (true!), music lessons for an aspiring musician (also true!), and team gear/equipment for an athlete (also true!). And as the owner of that small business, I want to thank you sincerely for your support in keeping my dream (working artist) alive, and furthering the dreams of my kids.

Wishing you a Thanksgiving (or holiday) table full of laughter and light,
Warmly, Kim

Kentucky Derby (& Oaks) Posters



Now that American Pharoah has won the Triple Crown and Grand Slam, I can add extra special inscriptions to Derby posters. A limited number of personalized Kentucky Derby and Oaks posters remain available. Please inquire.




Originals Under $100

You read that right! 

I've created intimately sized candy/holiday themed paintings and kept their prices under $100 (more will be coming in the next couple weeks). Looking for something less seasonal? How about one of my toy paintings, all priced at $75. And yes, I combine shipping. Let me know what you are looking for, and I can help. 


Nutcracker Artwork

I've invited friends and past students to create original art featuring a Nutcracker. These pieces will become available as completed. Check back often, and find the perfect gift for the Nutcracker collector on your list.


Gift Certificates 

Gifting a pet portrait is a pretty fantastic thing. I create full color certificates that can be framed for a spectacular presentation. And the recipient gets to participate in the entire process, from concept development to reference selection to the progress itself. Prices start at $399.



Cell Phones, Tote Bags, Throw Pillows, Duvet Covers (the list goes on)

With prices starting at $20 and over 200 images to choose from, there's so much possibility. 



A Dog Named Blue

This book of color is a perfect gift for toddlers from their pet-loving friends and relatives. Each page contains a full color reproduction of one of my animal paintings, with delightful color-centric puns and activities.

Additionally, there are 3 titles outlining my initial years as a daily painter (can you believe I'm in year 10?!) - artists and students alike will enjoy learning about the value of daily painting.





I accept Paypal and personal checks.

Gift certificates and payment plans always available.

I want to get my artwork into your hands. Inquire and let's make it happen.


Many thanks to the following galleries for their hard work every single day of the year. You are welcome to visit and see my pieces (and some other fabulous art) in person.

Spa Fine Art, Saratoga Springs, NY
Equis Art Gallery, Red Hook, NY
AKA Stella Gray, New Orleans, LA



I am seeking additional representation, and would particularly love to find a gallery space in Kentucky. I am not opposed to shipping or personally delivering my artwork elsewhere, either.
