After initially training as a primary school teacher in South Africa, Kim studied further and continued with her career as a learning specialist teacher. She emigrated to New Zealand in 2003. Kim has studied art throughout her life and values creativity.

Her strong belief that growth and change is possible within a well-designed programme, tailored to suit their needs and wholistic in approach, has contributed to her success.

Kim is inspired by nature in all its forms and this is reflected in her meaningful artwork.

It is also an extraordinary gift from the heart, for the heart.
