Kim Ford Kitz
Kim Ford Kitz grew up near the beach in Southern California and now lives in Marin County. Her love of the west coast comes through in her lush landscapes in oil, inspired by renowned Bay Area artists like Richard Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebaud, David Park and Joan Brown.
When she’s not looking out over the ocean, she’s painting the hills and towers of the city of San Francisco. The rows of rooftops and views of Alcatraz are uniquely interpreted in bold brushstrokes and modern palettes. Her abstract floral compositions come from memories of her father’s flower shop and the abundant gardens and wildflowers that surround her property near Point Reyes.
Kim studied painting and drawing at the San Francisco’s Academy of Art University. Besides her studio work, she’s designed theatrical sets for the San Anselmo Playhouse, Ross Valley Players, Marin and Inverness Shakespeare Companies. She has had solo exhibitions at Seager Gray Gallery and in group shows throughout California.
