As a young girl, Kimber began rescuing animals on her own, healing them, and setting them free when well. Her love of fairy tales, mythological creatures, and animals are a continuous theme that runs throughout her work. Kimber has a determined and independent spirit that naturally feeds into her artwork. She often combines unusual mediums. Using fabric and clay, teen idols cut from magazines collaged onto fabric, and found objects she creates environments for her clay figures. When asked why she chooses her subject matter, she replies, “to get the happy ending that we all are still looking for.”
Kimber and her teenage daughter often sketch together – teaching each other various artistic expressions.
