She has an Associate degree in Advertising Design. She also won a competition for a truck design for Waterbed City in Florida, USA.

She also lived in Norwich, England, for 18 months. It was there that she started to experiment with ceramics. For a number of years after her return to Barbados, she worked in the local red clay produced here on the island.

After several years, Kim decided to start to paint. Her style of art had always been more graphic, but an interest in fine art and oil painting soon developed. She currently paints with the Newcomers’ Art Group founded by Indrani Whittingham.

Currently, 50% of the proceeds from Kim’s art goes to help children in need.
She sponsors two children from the Bush Negro community in Suriname. She also sends clothing to these impoverished communities in Suriname.

Kim has travelled extensively – visiting other Caribbean islands, UK, USA, Canada, Guyana, Suriname and Venezuela. She enjoys seeing new places, and experiencing other cultures.
