Kim Dewsbury

Born in Cornwall, Kim returned to Falmouth to study Fine Art, and moved to North Wales in 1981. After several years in arts management she has only recently returned to her love of painting. Kim has exhibited widely in the past, and in 2013 was selected as the winner of the North Wales Open.

Kim has exhibited widely in the past including Royal Academy Summer Shows, Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru, John Noott, Broadway and Falmouth Art Gallery to name a few.

Kim is really excited by all the possibilities opening up again in her painting it is primarily an exploration of what she sees in front of her, and while enjoying the physical properties of paint she aims to give a solidity and reality and a significance to the often unassuming subject matter.

"Inspired by my rural surroundings - I value that first hand contact with nature; my sketchbooks are filled with walks, insects, clouds, natural ephemera etc. Patterns and textures fascinate: the velvety skin of a peach, the undulating folds of a distant hillside, the patina of a well thumbed book.....everything has a story to tell."

In 2013 Kim was selected as the winner of the North Wales Open,. Clwyd Theatr Cymru.

Kim is currently working on a series of oil paintings which connect still life and landscape through association of places and objects.
