Kimberly grew up on a farm in the township of Kincardine, Ontario with her 4 brothers and 2 sisters. The family raised prize-winning Hereford cattle, showing at fairs throughout Ontario including the CNE and the Royal Winter Fair.   Along with the cattle, the family kept at various times lambs, ducks, chickens, pigs, ponies, rabbits, cats, dogs, hamsters… even a pet donkey.

For the young artist, who had been drawing practically as soon as she could hold a pencil, the family farm was rather idyllic. When she wasn’t playing with the animals, she was learning how to draw them. Her favorite animal to draw was horses… later to be replaced by the hereford cattle that her family showed. As a young girl her passion for creating was nurtured by her mother (an art teacher & talented artist) along with several other wonderful teachers. They entered her art into the local fall fairs where her talent was often recognized and awarded. Little things like this inspired her continue, but mostly it was just the pure love of creating.

Since attending art school at the University of Guelph & Sheridan College she has worked in various capacities. From 2004-6, she worked as an in-house graphic designer and illustrator for Image Craft, Inc. & Lawson Falle Publishing creating greeting card artwork and designs. Working in-house allowed her to experiment with a variety of techniques and styles. Today she works as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer, creating work for greeting card companies, magazines and publishing companies. Her range of styles have been described as: cute, gentle, whimsical, traditional, humorous, juvenile and feminine.

Kimberly is an experienced graphic designer, capable of creating and setting up files to include die-cuts, foils and embosses for her cards.  Besides greeting cards, she has experience designing for other social expression product categories including journals, gift wrap, note pads, grocery lists, sticky note folders etc.

In the Fall of 2007, Kimberly illustrated her first published children’s book, “A Journey Through the Circle of Life”, for Pemmican Publications.  The following year, she illustrated “Granny’s Giant Bannock”, which was short-listed for the “McNally Robinson Book for Young People Award – Younger Category” at the 2009 Manitoba Book Awards.  Since then she has published 2 other books with Pemmican “I Loved Her” and “Boys Fiddle, Girls Dance” along with “Michael and the Purple Cows” through Book Surge.

Kimberly currently lives in Ingersoll, Ontario with her partner Mark and their dog, Leo.
