Hi there!

I'm Kim and those are my dusty hands down there.  I'm the gal that pushes the pencil, pen and chalk around in this studio. I'm an illustrator that loves letters, beautiful penmanship and chalk of course.

I currently live in Orlando but I'm not a native Floridian. I was born in Mount Airy, NC, better known as “Mayberry” from the Andy Griffith Show, and grew up in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  I discovered early in life that I was driven to create.  With a profound love of architecture and art I attended college and earned my degree with a major in Drafting and Design. After working in the engineering field for several years it became evident that I longed for the arts. 

My passion for hand illustrated type and chalk illustration has introduced me to an amazing community of artists and opened up numerous opportunities; including a career as an illustrator.  

In addition to being an artist,  I am a proud Momma to two beautiful girls, a furry dogson named Jack, and wife to a sweet man named John.
