Kim Roberti was born in Vietnam, settled in New Hampshire, and now retired to Texas. Kim started to paint at the age of 50 via a mid-life crisis. Seeking to understand the artistry of being an artist, Kim worked and studied privately for Sherrie McGraw and David Leffel every summer for 6 years. She loves the spontaneity of Milt Kobayashi and has attended his workshops. Kim is a member of the Daily Painters movement and contributes 1 – 3 paintings a day and sells her paintings on Ebay. To date Kim has painted and sold close to 3,000 of her works worldwide, garnishing numerous collectors.
Kim won the Jack Richardson award in pastel painting in early 2000. Her work graced the cover of Dick Blick’s catalog cover and she has been published in books and magazines.“I am more focused on learning than competing, so my competition is to better myself today over yesterday. It’s my journey.”
