Kim Zahller felt twitchy in the lag time between busy work in first grade, so began doodling in the margins of her papers. Her teacher tried to publicly humiliate her for this “messy” habit– an attempt which backfired. Her rebellious streak galvanized by this act of suppression, Kim continued to draw in the margins of her primary papers, her college notebooks and eventually her work notes and agendas.
Today, Kim still draws, but also paints, sculpts, builds creatures out of lumber and hardware, creates paper collages, and when the occasion calls, busts a mean groove on the dance floor. “My art is expressive, humorous, charming and playful. Coincidentally, so am I.”
