Traveling for 26 years with her Air Force husband, Kim learned to adapt and find the beauty where ever they were stationed. Now retired to O'Fallon, IL, she stays busy with her extended family, church, and volunteer work. Of her art, Kim says, "My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was only 9. By using wire, I can design and crochet unique pieces of jewelry. I especially love to incorporate wood, stone, gems, and pearls to show the natural beauty that God has put into this world."
