BEAUTIFUL FINE ART ORIGINALS
ART THAT INSPIRES THE IMAGINATION!
[dropcap]My[/dropcap] name is Kim Heath and I am an international artist living in Sun Valley in the lower Blue Mountains. I love creating beautiful artworks using molten wax (encaustics), mixed media and glass, as well as oils, acrylics, and resin, among other things. I love to explore new ways of making art, being limited only by my imagination! Each of my works is unique and unlike anything else you will encounter.
After running my own beauty business for fifteen years, in which I was a makeup artist and colour consultant, I turned to art as a way of expressing my desire to create something new. So I enrolled in art classes at the Springwood Art Centre, using pastels as my medium, which I enjoyed, but was not what I was looking for. Then I discovered encaustics! I completed some workshops, including at the Summer School at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst. I found my new passion! I am brimming with ideas and very excited by exploring this amazing medium even more. I like to work out how I can join different mediums together to create something unique and very different.
Many of my pieces have been hung in various art galleries and exhibitions in the mountains, and elsewhere. Many have been sold both here and overseas, and I have also done several works by commission. I am a participant in the BMAN Art Trails each year, and have received a Highly Commended Award at the Edge Gallery. I have had my own exhibition at Gallery One88 in Katoomba and also Grenfell Art Gallery.
I manage my own studio/gallery in Sun Valley in the lower Blue Mountains where I run workshops. My gallery is open the first weekend in every month between 10am & 4pm, or by appointment, or just drop in if you are in the area, and experience and enjoy my beautiful creations for yourself. My artwork may be just what you are looking for!
