This is what I love to do.

I have always envisioned a future life where I painted for a living.

Through many years in a career as a designer, I have lived with an insatiable desire to create. My painting practice ebbed and flowed through times of work and raising my two kids. But today I am acting on my desire in a way that requires me to paint in a more disciplined way and pushes me to make my work accessible to whoever would be drawn to it. The goal is to connect with those who will find joy living with the things I make.

Will you experience even little bit of the joy I feel when I create these paintings?

That is my hope. xo

Three Wishes - abstract painting by Kim Moulder
That lost and found feeling one gets when they love what they are doing.

I've chased that state of being lost in my work from an early age. Always exploring, testing and trying. I'm so lucky to have found many ways to that place. The path that led to these paintings was paved with many years as a graphic designer, artist, and illustrator.
When I am engrossed in a group of paintings time stops for me. But, my muse follows me through all times. 💜

Owning a piece of original art can be a way to connect with your own muse. Just catching sight of a beautiful painting in your home each day can awaken you to inspired living. It's easier than ever to own original artworks—and even more, to personally 'know' the artist who makes them.  Have a question? Let me know!

Tranquil Departure by Kim Moulder

The approach I take to painting can start with words, a feeling, a photograph of flowers or landscape, a color combination that excites me, or a collage element that I particularly like.

 

The work evolves from there and I never know where it will end up. I lay down the beginning layers with paint or collage and this guides the color and feel of the piece from the very beginning. Spontaneity can take it in new directions. That is exciting to me because I never know exactly what to expect. 

When I'm working in my studio—color, paint, and surface all begin to sing as the piece progresses. Often I get lost in the process—but really, I'm finding myself again and again.

I completed my BFA, in the School of Fine Art at Auburn University with a concentration in Graphic Design. I have worked as a designer for over 30 years while exploring illustration and fine art painting in different mediums. I take full advantage of many opportunities to learn from other artists and I love to to share my own experience.

IN THE PAST

Kim's primary art was watercolor in the early 2000s and 2010s and had a very unique style.. She showed and sold her work locally in many shows and venues during that time. In 2011, she started exploring abstract collage and in the next few years did several series of small paintings in this style, which directly led to her exploration into abstract expressionist painting today.

 

While raising her family along with her husband, she has worked from home as a freelance graphic and web designer and spent time exploring surface pattern design with a ten week intensive course which led to showing at an international surface design trade show in NYC in 2014. Since then, Kim has continued with design work—but more recently has focused her attention on her daily painting practice and art business.
