Kim Press | Episode 213

Kim Press

Kim Press Giveaway FlowersKim Press likes to think of her work as her story. Each piece of art that Kim makes is a feeling, a thought, or a small moment in her life that is screaming to get out. Kim loves that she can make things that are uniquely her own. In a time where you can have anything you desire delivered to your doorstep with the click of a button, Kim loves that she is able to create things that require time to make. For Kim, being a maker in a world run by machines is incredibly gratifying. Kim’s work is Kim’s story. Kim’s work is Kim.

How has giving changed your life?

I think it makes me a happier person and makes me feel like I am doing what I should be doing with my life.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I would say nature would probably be my biggest answer. Water, I do a lot of waves. Swirls, holes, wind, with my carving the depth and the imperfections of nature come through.

How important is photography?

I think it’s pretty important although all my work photos I take with my iPhone in my garage.

Do you do any post-photograph editing?

On Instagram I put filters on things but no, I don’t tweak any kind of settings.

I think I would be invisible. I think it would be interesting to see what people are really like, you know?
