Kimberly Burnett


oslo art gallery

Kimberly Burnett is a remarkably talented artist and illustrator who is entirely self-taught. Her early years were spent in the tranquil foothills of North Carolina, where she was surrounded by lush forests and a diverse array of wildlife. From the young age of two, Kimberly discovered an innate passion for art, spending countless hours poring over every available art book at her local library while continuously refining her drawing skills. Her dedication and love for art have led her to become a distinguished artist, recognized for her exceptional talent and unique style.

Her current artistic style is heavily influenced by her admiration for the classical painters of Europe and their realistic approach. Due to her synesthesia, she perceives various emotions, melodies, recollections, and locations in distinct hues, which is evident in her vibrant depictions of individuals and inanimate objects. The natural world and the individuals who hold a special place in her heart are her primary sources of inspiration.
