Kim Reid's lifetime interest in art began in childhood, then on to university studying fine art, art history and design. Many years were invested in a large aircraft company as technical illustrator and graphic designer.
Her ever-expanding repertoire of watercolor paintings and limited edition prints are displayed in many local galleries and venues in Humboldt, the most popular collection being the redwood forests of the Pacific Northwest and Lost Coast. (KimARTandDesign.com) She is working on a series of portraits of the most iconic ancient redwoods, for example: Luna, The Corkscrew Tree, Giant Tree, Big Tree and Big Red. She wants to extend her gallery reach into Mendocino County. Other works by Kim include euro castle history (CastleColors.com), ancestral villages and California Missions (MissionPaintings.com). Larger viewing of these portfolio images are available on these gallery websites. Capturing nature in landscapes and history has inspired all her painting collections. She is very glad to be showing and selling her work through Humboldt Artists Gallery in the Morris Graves Museum of Art.
Kim has a new series of art that is being shown/sold in the gallery. Its laser inscribed burl wood, done from her scanned line drawing of "Tall Tree" Sequoia Semperviren.
