ARTIST: KIM MARIE
Welcome to the mystical, magical world of award winning artist Kim Marie. Completely self taught, Kim is a multi media artist. From a very early age, she loved to draw. Most of her drawings were inspired by the incredible art of master fantasy artist, Frank Frazetta.
In 1997, Kim was introduced to polymer clay and thus began her figurative doll sculpting journey. Three years later Kim won first prize in the Professional Dollmakers Prosculpt contest for her "Marilyn", a very life-like portrait doll of Marilyn Monroe.
Kim's work has been featured in numerous doll magazine publications, calendars, and books including Dollreader, Dolls magazine (5/02),Dollcrafter and in the UK's "Doll" magazine. Kim's work was also featured in a lovely 2004-2005 calendar entitled "Dolls of Diversity". Her piece, 'Shira-Mistress of Beasts' was featured on the front cover. Kim has also had her work featured in a book "Contemporary American Doll Artists and their Dolls" by Kathryn Witt, published in 2004. Kim's piece 'Blue Ice' was chosen to be featured on the front cover.
In 2003, Kim sculpted a portrait doll of the legendary 50's pin up queen, Bettie Page. Kim's ultimate highlight of her dollmaking career was contacting Bettie Page and sending her a photo of Bettie's portrait doll, as well as the Contemporary American Doll Artists and Their Dolls book featuring Bettie's portrait. Kim even spoke to Bettie on the phone! A moment she will never, ever forget.
Ever evolving, Kim began designing intricate miniature jeweled doll crowns in 2004.
In 2005, Kim began creating Victorian style charm bracelets and painting heart charms. Her work has been featured in the magazines 'Vintage', 'Crazed Collector' and 'Romantic Homes'.
