Kimberley Cook, CSPWC, primarily lets her experiences tell the story of each painting. Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Kimberley worked as an Architectural draftsperson for 13 years, and made the switch to fine arts in 1996, and has been painting full time ever since.
She loves to take an intimate look at the things that inspire and matter to her and portrays them with sensitivity and feeling. Whether in watercolour or oil, her painting style is about letting the paint take her on an uncontrolled ride of discovery.

Although she paints in watercolour and acrylic, her medium of choice is "oil". Kimberley's favourite subjects to paint are the garden, marinescapes, cityscapes and the human figure, and loves the challenge of the landscape and still life.
