THE QUEEN’S DIAMOND JUBILEE RIVER THAMES PAGEANT
Kim was invited by the BBC as one of a select group of artists to paint The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee River Thames Pageant, interpreting the spectacle in their own way. The artists were positioned on The Millennium Bridge and formed part of BBC1’s live coverage on 3rd June 2012. One thousand boats will be led by The Queen and Members of the Royal family in The Royal Barge were decorated especially for the occasion sailing from Chelsea to Tower Bridge. The artists’ progress was filmed throughout the afternoon and some were interviewed about their art and how they viewed The Pageant.

The chosen artists used different mediums and styles. Kim painted with acrylic on canvas which is her favoured medium. Her impressionistic style portrays her love of dramatic light and shade within a subject. Kim loves to paint the British countryside and animals within it, such as sheep and cows, also British coastlines where she enjoys capturing patterns in the sea, incorporating boats, beaches, buildings, jetties and such-like.

‘BRITAIN’ MAGAZINE
‘Britain’ magazine did a feature in 2012 on Exploring Britain in Art, where it looked at artists who have been inspired by the British countryside from Constable to Hockney. Kim's work featured in the article which will showed some of her countryside paintings.
