Issue #3 of the 2016 The Decorative Painter magazine is in the mail! Over the next few weeks, we’ll introduce you to the artists in the current issue and share the inspiration behind their finished projects.
This week, meet Kim Christmas!
Kim Christmas’s love for decorative painting began in the front store window of a decorative painting shop. Window shopping became browsing, browsing became shopping, shopping became painting, and so the story goes!
Art was always a focus in her family growing up. With most of Kim’s family originating in Europe and bringing their talents in pastels, oil and watercolor, the influence was there from a very young age. Her love of the seasons and festive décor was the catalyst from that point forward.
Kim’s first book was published in 2003 and she has eight books published to date. She has also been published in a wide range of magazine articles over the years and had the honor of being published in the 100 Angels collection of hand-painted angels presented by The National Museum of Decorative Painting.
Kim’s project, “Christmas in the Woodlands, will get you ready for a frosty, sparkling Christmas season!
