BIO

About the Artist

Anna Kim is a Filipino artist based in San Francisco. She paints in her private studio in the Design District. At a young age, Anna discovered her talent when she started drawing portraits and nature. She later developed a love for photography which she considers another extension of her artistry. Her career in photography spanned 15+ years; it started in the darkroom and culminated in professional photography. She was also a proprietor and cake artist making one-of-a-kind custom cakes for a few years while raising her family. Today, she focuses on her love of painting where she is recognized by her vibrant abstract landscapes. Anna grew up in a family of artists where she developed different styles and studied art in California. Her paintings are colorful with striking textures, movement and depth. She has participated in a number of group and solo exhibitions in the United States. Her paintings can be seen hanging in private collections and corporate businesses both locally and internationally. 

Artist Statement

My work is an expression of my life experiences, travels and nature. I have practiced a wide variety of art forms from photography & darkroom printing, cake artistry, sculpting and painting. Currently, my focus is painting abstract landscapes as it helps me heal from my health issues. My medium is acrylic. I use palette knives, silicone brushes, and different gel mediums in my work. My artistic process starts with an idea that I would interpret on a canvas or wood panel. I then add some mark-making, textures and then start painting. I like to use vivid colors and different kinds of techniques. All of my art experience from the past is still my inspiration for my current work. Through my art, I want to stimulate encouragement and healing
