She has sold over 130 framed original artworks marketed through Victorian and Queensland gallery, public and commercial venues, and has licensed and commercialised a range of images for retail applications (see here for detailed information). Kim continues to create highly original semi abstract images to inspire deep reflection and understanding of complex phenomena.
DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY (Examples displayed above)
Kim has only recently explored abstract digital photography and has developed a unique style of visual image, with several images having already been published on covers of Australian edition text books. A broad range of these inspirational and unique images (accompanied by words) are now available for a variety of commercial applications (see here for details).
