MBF Member Profile
Kim Staples, professional artist, art therapist and art tutor practising in Port Macquarie.
One of her driving passions is to help people find a better physical and emotional well being through artist expression.
Kim is best known for her diverse colourful art. Her art pieces reflect an emotion captured in time.
Art for Everyone
A key part of her artist life is sharing it with youth groups, Alzheimer's sufferers, people with special needs, disabilities and other challenging conditions. She loves teaching them as it gives them self worth. Art is a limitless world which they can all access and be free to express and feel.
It is no secret where Kim’s warm smile and bubbly laughter come from. She loves capturing subjects that are colourful which give joy and happiness to people in their lives. And what goes round, comes round. Kim also receives this joy and happiness in return.
What attracts people to Kim’s work is the emotion that is captured and felt behind the painting when they look at it. As an artist, that is what drives Kim to return to the studio and keep creating. As Kim says, ¨It's me on that canvas.¨ And people identify with that.
