Kim Dewsbury

Kim has recently been able to return to her passion for painting after spending several years organising and curating  exhibitions. From Cornwall originally, Kim left Falmouth School of Art with a Degree in Fine Art, and continued to work in mixed media and painting. 


Kim has exhibited widely  in the past – including Royal Academy Summer Shows, Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru, and Falmouth Art Gallery to name a few. Recent Exhibitions include:

Arenig Revisited - MOMA,  Machynlleth, 2014 (curated and exhibited)

Joint Exhibition - Ffin y Parc, Llanrwst, 2015

Alice in Wonderland - MOMA, Machynlleth - 2015


Kim is really excited  by all the possibilities opening up again  in her painting – it is primarily an exploration of what she sees in front of her, and while enjoying the physical properties of paint she aims to give a solidity and reality  and a significance to the often unassuming subject matter. 


"Inspired by my rural surroundings - I value that first hand contact with nature; my sketchbooks are filled with walks, insects, clouds, natural ephemera etc. Patterns and textures fascinate: the velvety skin of a peach, the undulating folds of a distant hillside, the patina of a well thumbed book.....everything has a story to tell."


In 2013 Kim  was selected as the winner of the North Wales Open, Clwyd Theatr Cymru.
