Kirschbaum, Kimberly




Art mediums: Pastels, Colored pencil (Prismacolor), and Graphite.

Artist’s Statement: One of the best things my mother ever said to me was, “Kim, you see things quite differently than other people do.” That statement pleased me since I often see everyday magic in my surroundings. I enjoy working in dry mediums, primarily buttery pastels, delicate colored pencil, and expressive graphite. Affording myself of these challenging materials, I infuse unexpected color, evocative atmosphere, and joy in the creative process into my work. As Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir famously commented: “To my mind, a picture should be something pleasant, cheerful, and pretty, yes pretty! There are too many unpleasant things in life as it is without creating still more of them.”
