ABOUT JAMIE JM KIM

 

 

BIO

Since young age, I always loved to draw and express my ideas into pictures which officially led me to begin preparing for my career as an artist in middle school. During the years of middle and high school, I consistently participated in various art clubs to expand my art experience and finally attended a college with a major of fashion design to diligently be involved in the field of art by drawing countless miniatures for many years. Even after earning college diploma, I continued to participate in many art activities by exhibiting personal art pieces and teaching others.

In 2010, I decided to move oversea to United States to further expand my art career. For about 4 years, I focused on learning new language as well as assisting two of my beloved kids to fully adapt into new country. In 2014, I served as the art director of BnJ Gallery in Atlanta and began teaching and sharing my knowledge about drawing, water-color painting, and illustration in Underwood University located in Suwanee.

While I was teaching I found out about The American Society of Botanical Artists. I instantly fell in love with the Botanical Art at first sight and also was very excited to get to know more about this newly acquired plant picture style. and joined the botanical art society to continue my career as a botanical artist.

I enjoy the challenge of creating a faithful plant painting using the watercolors. I'm very glad that I finally found the art that perfectly suits my style, and I believe that this will be my huge turning point of my life.
