Kim Roberti was born in Vietnam, settled in New Hampshire, and now retired to Texas. Kim started to paint at the age of 50 via a mid-life crisis. Seeking to understand the artistry of being an artist, Kim worked and studied privately for Sherrie McGraw and David Leffel every summer for 6 years. She loves the spontaneity of Milt Kobayashi and has attended his workshops. Kim is a member of the Daily Painters movement and contributes 1 – 3 paintings a day and sells her paintings on Ebay. To date Kim has painted and sold close to 3,000 of her works worldwide, garnishing numerous collectors.
Kim won the Jack Richardson award in pastel painting in early 2000. Her work graced the cover of Dick Blick’s catalog cover and she has been published in books and magazines.“I am more focused on learning than competing, so my competition is to better myself today over yesterday. It’s my journey.”
Work is love made visible. I’ve learned and grow both personally and artistically thru the years. As in life I made many mistakes have failures, but I see them as tools to soften my edges, sharpen my vision, and washes the windows of my soul. Welcome to share my life journey. Artworks are yours to enjoy or if you want to own a piece, contact me at email@example.com for details. May all blessings be yours!
My art journey began in 2000. I began studying how-to books, learning from artists near and far, including 6 years studying privately with the renown masters Sherrie McGraw and David Leffel, from whom I learned the classic Rembrandt chiaroscuro genre.
At the other end of the spectrum, I took a couple workshops from Milt Kobayashi, a Japanese American Artist, with whom I learned the influence of Asian art.
In 2007, I joined the DailyPainters group, and have since painted at a rate of anywhere from 1 to 3 small paintings a day, 7 days a
week, 365 days a year. I began selling them on eBay and have garnered thousands of collectors from all corners of the world.
I favor figures/portraits subjects in which I found rich and endlessly interesting ways to express myself.
