BIO

About the Artist

Anna Kim was born in Manila, Philippines. She migrated to the United States when she was a teenager. 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. More recently, she was a proprietor and cake artist making           one-of-a-kind custom cakes. Today, she focuses on her painting where her style is recognized by vibrant color landscapes and flowers. She also recently started wood sculpture. ​

Anna grew up in a family of artists where she developed different styles and studied art in California. She has participated in a number of group exhibitions and solo exhibitions in the United States. Her inspiration comes from her world travels and life experiences. Her paintings can be seen hanging in private collections and corporate businesses. 

Artist Statement

My work is an expression of my life experiences and travels. I use a wide variety of art forms from photography to darkroom printing, cake artistry, sculpting and painting. Right now, my focus is landscape painting as it has helped me heal from the health issues I had. My medium is acrylic, I use palette knives, sponges, and different gel mediums in my work. My artistic process starts with an idea, and I create my own interpretation of it on a canvas or wood panel. I then add some mark-making, textures and finally start painting. I like using vibrant colors and different kinds of techniques on my painting. All my art experience from the past is still my inspiration for my current paintings. My intention is to engage my viewers in the emotion and imagination that flows within their minds. Through my art, I want to stimulate healing as it has helped me.
