About the Artist
Kiimberly A. Laudert
I thrive because I believe darkness, difficulty, and even death can give rise to creativity, grace, and joy. I attend to what is before me to express gratitude. I am an alchemist whose artistry transmutes life into art. I create in acrylics, fiber, pastels, and charcoal. I am drawn to capturing nature, animals, abstract landscapes, and still life. Nature influences me as well as the beauty that can arise in the challenges of life. Mental health and physical issues inform some of the best poetry and art I have created. It drove me to declare my “year of art” in August 2017. This led me to Artability and Avivo. Art continues to be the constant ribbon moving throughout my life. Everything and every experience has the potential to sponsor and create appreciation, and thus, underscoring and encouraging life. I have shown and sold pieces of artwork at the Science Museum, Sower Museum, and Artability shows.
