KimBERLY Kort

LIVE Exhibitor Chair

Kimberly Kort believes that the rules are there are no rules. Every day is a new discovery of colors, shapes, and beauty. The world has always been a canvas for her the past five years. Kimberly expresses her views through acrylic fluid art movement. Fluid art helped calm the debilitating migraines that she had suffered for years. The paint spilling out then forms into a beautiful expressive creation.

Nature is one of the main inspirations for what pours out of each cup of paint. Kimberly likes her art to evoke different emotions and each time people see it they can interpret it differently based on their current feelings. One of her goals is that her paintings provide a brain escape to get into a deeper thinking of what the eyes see and how the mind deciphers it. Abstract art is left on the canvas and each viewer can see the many different things they want.

Kimberly Kort sits on the boards of Texas Jewish Art Association at the Secretary and the Richardson Civic Art Society at a Chairperson for programs. She belongs to the Visual Arts Guild of Frisco and the Plano Art Association.

Her work has hung in Wylie Art Gallery, and currently is on a solo exhibition at Dunn Brothers Coffee Café. She also has works at Studio Art House, and online at All Artwork Gallery. She also has a gallery store on URBAN ARTIST MARKET ONLINE.
