Featured Artist: Kimberlee Forney

Kimberlee Forney is one of the latest additions to the Staart Gallery. She has a really unique style that puts a smile on my face and has caught the eye of everyone who has been in since we hung her paintings on the walls. You can see more of her work at Staart here and she has her own website with even more stuff and info on her social missions here. Enjoy!

Here's Kim's bio:
Growing up in northern Vermont, Kimberlee Forney enjoyed creating art at an early age. She developed her artistic and technical skills while attending Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania. While there she studied various artistic mediums, including printmaking, lithography, sculpture, drawing and painting. After graduation, Kimberlee’s fantastical style developed out of a basic idea involving a lively and musical bar scenario with human-like forms embedded in the scene (titled “Jazzy at the Bar”). Her business, Natural Expressions, was formed and other pieces involving various cultural scenes, animal forms, and landscapes soon followed. Her favorite subjects to explore relate to the beauty and spirituality present in the natural world and in the cultural world surrounding us. She reproduces her paintings in the form of limited-edition giclee prints at North Seven Studios in Brandon, Vermont. Kimberlee displays at the Brandon Artists’ Guild in Brandon, the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Art on Main in Bristol, The Northern Vermont Artist’s Association (NVAA), Kennedy Bros. in Vergennes, the Chaffee Art Center in Rutland and the Artisan’s Gallery in Waitsfield. She also displays art on the PBS online art’s gallery. When the weather is right, she enjoys to paint and display her artwork in the artist’s alley on Church Street in Burlington.
