Kimberly is a 2009 graduate of Kutztown University, where she earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Art Education with a minor in Crafts. During her time at Kutztown, she concentrated her studio studies around the fiber arts, including both weaving and non-loom techniques. After graduation, Kimberly began a career as an art teacher and later became an educator at the Allentown Art Museum. Within the museum, she found herself very interested in exhibition work and eventually moved into the curatorial department working as a collections assistant and preparator.
In April 2013, Kimberly was accepted as a resident artist at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Being a resident artist has allowed her to focus on her artwork and get more involved in the artist community in the Lehigh Valley. She plans to continue creating and experiencing all she can in the area of fiber arts, while teaching classes in various types of felt making within the community.
