MEET THE ARTIST
Kim Floyd is a still life painter exploring the themes that connect us and make life worth celebrating. Her work is nostalgic and celebrates childhood memories. It is an uncanny blend of realism and whimsy, with a unique ability to capture textures and surfaces.
Kim was born and raised in Ottawa, and from an early age she loved drawing and making things. She attended The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD University) in the early 1990s where she received her Bachelor of Art in Fine Art and a minor in Art History.
She has settled in Bedford, Nova Scotia to raise her family and began teaching art in her home in 2017. She opened Flying Mackerel Studio in the Fall of 2018 because teaching art has been a lifelong goal.
