Kim Amell is a contemporary encaustic & oil painter based in Banner Elk, NC.
She began her artistic career painting murals, custom art and designing
interiors for her clients. The need to create an object with her hands has always
followed her throughout her life. Her most recent body of work has been
exploring the allure of nature and the power and strength it holds in the world.
Kim finds her art inspiration in the textures that nature offers; a worn old piece
of wood, the strength of moving water or the way the sun hits the landscape.
Kim is moved to create ethereal works that evoke a sense of mystic and wonder
that you are drawn into.
Kim works out of her studio in Banner Elk, NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
