Backyard Echinacea by Kimberly Ducote-Schimmel

mixed media

11 x 14 inches

Artist Statement: Backyard Echinacea is from my backyard. All summer long this is my place of solace and calm. This piece involves layers of digital transfers, applied colors and oil paint, and various textures and papers. With its odd color combination and bug eaten petals, Echinacea is a plant that stays the season, holding its beauty and shape regardless of its ever increasing imperfections.

Bio: Kimberly is a mixed media artist combining photography, painting and various other materials in her work. Her goal is to create something that expresses what she saw and the impression left in her mind from the scene. As someone schooled in photography, she recognizes that a photograph is a record of a single moment in time which can be regarded as both a goal and a limitation at the same time. With her work, she hopes to evoke both the sense of place (moment in time) and the changing feel (light, weather, sense of calm or urgency) of a location.

Kimberly received a BS in Studio Art from Stony Brook and immediately started her career as a commercial photographer. She has photographed for major corporations, advertising agencies and editorial publications. Her work has won several awards including inclusion in the book and exhibition Ten Thousand Eyes, ASMP and was awarded the Award of Excellence from Communication Arts Photography Annual. As an artist, her work is inspired from her perception of nature and her photography, often combining the two. She currently works for West Windsor Arts.
