KIM CODY - BA hons (Fine Art) Maidstone College of Art. ATD, Cert.Ed. University of Leicester. Kim has drawn and painted all her life. She was a teacher of art and design for thirty five years before moving in 2002 to Brittany where she lived and worked for twelve years. Kim's paintings have become over time completely non representational. The compositions consist of lines, shapes, colours, tones and textures. She considers drawing to be an essential part of the process and observational studies frequently form the starting point of her work. The paintings are often heavily textured and may be either worked in oils or acrylics generally using a very limited palette of colours. Kim exhibits regularly in France and the UK and her work is in collections worldwide. Since November 2014 she has been living and working in Farnham, Surrey and visitors are welcome at the studio all year round by appointment.
