Kim Tinuviel photography • encaustic • sculpture • mixed media

Kim Tinuviel’s artwork reflects the abstract textures and colors of her everyday world. She artfully orchestrates a complex interplay of cameras, computers, traditional art-making processes and found objects to create her unique work. She is fascinated by the colors and textures of oxidization and decay, and frequently use unique combinations of materials. Since childhood, she has had the ability to 'hear' color, due to a neurological condition called synesthesia. That, coupled with extensive training (from The Juilliard School in NYC) and experience as a classically-trained musician (she still performs regularly as a freelance double bassist in Seattle area orchestras) has had a significant influence on her work, adding rhythm, harmony and lyrical qualities to the visual dimension of her imagery. As a visual artist, Kim’s singular goal is to find the extraordinary within the ordinary.
