Bio: "Hi! Thank you for stopping by my WordPress Blog. My artwork (and imagination!) can be described by 3 W's - Wacky, Whimsical and (sometimes) Weird. They range from realistic wildlife to fantasy animals and creatures that are my own original creations. Please, feel free to explore my websites where I regularly list my art for sale. I also have a Facebook listed page under Kim Loberg Studio you can visit."-Kim 'I believe...that there is an animal spirit in every object I see. Half the fun of being an artist is using my imagination to set it free.' -Kim Loberg Artist Statement- I have always been fascinated with animals in both their natural state and as fantasy creatures. Having a very fertile imagination, fantasy takes hold and one of my horses becomes a great sea steed, wild and free to roam the depths of a fantasy ocean. My housecat Bob becomes a bat-winged creature or a witch's spider-cat while our roosters morph into zombies, walking the earth on Halloween night, which by the way, is my favorite holiday. Nature and color are the elements that motivate my paintings. Color breathes life into my art, giving it depth and form. Viewing nature sparks my imagination, embarking it on an endless journey with beautiful and sometimes unsettling results. That journey is also part of my quest to define my work and find my niche in the art world.
