Kim K Whittemore - Digital Artist
-- Kim K Whittemore
My attitude is "why not!" when working on an image concept. Who's to say what is and what isn't. If I've created an alternative reality for the viewer to enjoy, then I really have created that reality. That's pretty cool! I want to continue to create those alternative realities.
I'm an artist in various forms... digital/traditional artist, musician and writer. I really just love to make stuff!
Upon completing my Law of Attraction Life Coach certification, I actually re-discovered that my life purpose was to create.
It was the long way around, but I'm here and stepping confidently into my purpose.
My love for art started as a child and my first pieces were drawings and paintings. I studied art in high school and college, although I didn't graduate from college. I went forward in graphic design for many years, self taught and fortunate enough to find employers seeing my value without technically being "educated." A 12 year stint as a photographer brought me to Photoshop and I fell in love. At first I was in awe of what enhancements I could do to simply make a photograph better, but years later I finally realized the art potential in Photoshop. I've not stopped since and I couldn't be happier.
I define myself as a "pixel mixer", but I still love traditional painting too. It is a passion to create for me, and it really doesn't matter what.
