Artist Bio

Kimberly Overton grew up along the Malibu coast. Coastal scenes emerge as a strong voice in her artistic expression. As a child, Kimberly won first prize in the Save the Santa Monica Bay art contest creating a collage of a girl fishing for a bottle from a boat, using scraps of painted paper, real sand, and a doll bottle. Kimberly still likes to combine art forms.

Kimberly studied psychology and civil engineering in college and was lucky enough to take an oil painting class from San Francisco Bay Area artist Frank Lobdell. It was through his teaching style, that she found freedom of expression. With the simple words, "keep painting", and very little critique, Lobdell's influence has kept her painting and creating art for many years. Kimberly loves colors, light, texture, layers, and impressions. She uses acrylic paint, oil pastels, natural objects, and photography. When Kimberly expresses herself through art, it usually evolves into multiple layers.

Kimberly has participated in a variety of art shows and exhibits over the years from California to New York.
