Kimberley Harris is an artist known for her passion for painting and her unique signature style, focusing on the natural beauty of the countryside. With a keen eye for composition, she layers multiple elements to give a wonderful depth to her work. Working in oils, the palette knife has become an indispensable tool for giving texture.
One of Kimberley’s earliest memories was her father, a great lover of impressionist art, taking her to a JMW Turner exhibition at the Tate Gallery. That was it – she was going to paint like this genius one day and ten years later in 2005, she gained a Diploma in Art and Design.
She re-ignited her passion for painting in 2014 after meeting a renowned artist who introduced her to oils and the palette knife.
Kimberley Harris “quickly developed my own signature style, focusing on the natural beauty of the countryside that I am so lucky to be surrounded by. With an emphasis on colour and light and how one affects the other at different times of the day, Turners artistic inspiration is never far from my thoughts. The process of layering and blending the palette knife work to obtain the right tone, texture and light is so important to me.”
To date, Kimberley has sold paintings all over the UK with several finding their way to the USA and Australia.
