Award-winning artist, Kimberley Kohan is a Canadian-born Australian who lives and works - and occasionally exhibits - in Perth, Western Australia. Her art is mainly inspired by the Kimberley region of the northern parts of that state. She lived and worked there for years and still returns regularly.
Kimberley’s style of artwork has often been described as ‘Contemporary Realism’. While the three mediums of oil, gouache and pastel allow her to create different outcomes, the common thread through all the paintings is the richness of colour inspired by the colour of the Kimberley landscape. This region, located in the remote corner of Western Australia, was home for Kimberley for eleven years.
Kimberley regularly travels through the north west of Western Australia, and more recently Mongolia and Singapore, through the course of her work. In each place she finds inspiration whether from the colour of the Singapore markets, the beauty of the Gobi desert in winter or the remnants of an old pier on Rottnest Island. Each day adds to her understanding and appreciation of the land. She is planning to develop a body of work of some of her travels over the next couple of years that she hopes will contain the same feeling and love that she has for the Kimberley landscape.
