As part of a fourth generation farm family, Kim Casebeer has felt a connection to the landscape for a long time. Kim now travels across the USA to gather material and teach workshops, but believes the simplicity of the Kansas landscape has helped her find the essence of other places and focus on what's important in a composition.
Kim received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Kansas State University in 1992. She worked as a graphic designer and art director for ten years while spending evenings and weekends painting until 2002, when she was able to make the leap to full-time artist.
Kim is a Master Signature Member of the American Women Artists, and a Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America and the Pastel Society of America. She has been featured in American Artist, SouthwestArt, American Art Collector, Western Art Collector, Art of the West and PleinAir Magazine. She is featured in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone section of Art of the National Parks, co-authored by Susan Hallsten McGarry and Jean Stern.
Kim has taught workshops and judged art events throughout the United States, including Cashiers Plein Air in North Carolina, Pastel Society of Colorado National Juried Show and Workshop, Hoosier Salon show and workshop in Indiana, Western Regional Oil Painters of America show, and the American Women Artists National Juried Exhibition. Kim also offers an online mentoring option that allows one-on-one critiques and individualized work.
Kim has work in many private, corporate and museum collections throughout the United States. She is represented by galleries in Arizona, Wyoming, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri.
