KimNelsonCreations' Shop Announcement

Kim Nelson is an artist, columnist and award-winning author of three non-fiction books and a poetry collection. Also a visual artist, Nelson works in her Tucson, Arizona studio in the company of Pete and Cooper, the Doxie Boys. Using various media including encaustic, acrylic, watercolor and pastels, she creates original, fine art.

"As a wordsmith, I respect the power of words, the power of every word. I use those necessary to convey meaning, message or thought, neither wasting nor wanting. With a natural inclination toward rhyme and meter, I spend a fair amount of time in wordplay to convey the nuances I intend.

My visual work is layered, both literally and figuratively. I paint in, paint over, add texture and depth with various media and ephemera. I use my fingers to apply and alter material as well as brushes, palette knives, toothpicks and popsicle sticks. I use a variety of textiles to remove and alter what I've put on the canvas. A blowdryer and heat gun often come in handy. I find it easy to keep my writing simple. In creating art, I tend toward abundance, over-exuberance. I'm working to pare down my approach to create cleaner pieces.

In all that I do, I'm ever-evolving, constantly learning, perpetually growing and changing."
