Kimberly Levi's studio is located in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she is a contemporary artist whose passion for art and life is seen in her colorful images. When creating mixed media work, she paints with a variety of materials and mediums; alkyd oils, pastels, encaustic, metallic powders, organic fibers, and gilding with copper, gold, and silver metal leaf. Her emphasis on each design is to use color, pattern, and texture to create a cohesive statement of mood and style. When creating Plein air landscape paintings, she uses alkyd oil or soft pastels. These mediums enable her to paint quickly, which is critical in capturing the fleeting moods of nature. She also enjoys the flexibility of these paints, for they render fine detail, thin washes of color, or thick impasto layers.
“I am motivated to produce paintings that engage the viewer in the creative process as they experience the work. To draw them into a dance of visual stimulation which reveals the excitement of life. My hope is that the viewer will experience the type of inspiration, peace, and hope I felt while creating the art.”
