Kim Roberti | Figurative painter

Kim Roberti was born and reared in the Southern region of Vietnam.
She immigrated to the United States in 1966 at the age of 16.
Since that time she has lived in many areas of the US and other countries around the world.
All the while, Kim had a love for art and longed to paint.

In 1999 she gave up another career and began the path to becoming an artist.
In the years since, Kim has enjoyed much success by winning numerous awards in local shows while developing a following of collectors.
Kim has studied under many artists, most notably David Leffel and Sheri McGraw in Taos, New Mexico.
Aside from her painting, Kim also teaches classes in her studio and gallery in Cottonwood, Texas.

"I love painting...it's my life! I love the endless series of tasks exploring the abstract elements of lines, shapes, values, colors, textures and edges!"
"Looking for the right lively-hood and wanting to work with something I really, really love and the desire to re-connected with my childhood joy, I found painting.
I have made painting my full time job since 2000.
I have tried every medium and genre, and find that I love them all. It is a wonderful journey of self-discovery".
