Meet Your Representative Carol Kimble
My work is strongly influenced by my emotions as I speak and listen on particular subjects and topics that have strong meaning to me. I begin with color, shape and light to represent what I want to say. I continue talking through my choices using piecing, applique, paint, fabric manipulation, dye, thread painting, embellishment and intricate quilting patterns. I love everything that is in any way connected to fabric and stitching. I have sewn clothes and decorator items since I was quite young. I did commercial art and I taught art in a junior high as a young professional woman. In the past few years I found the joy of creating my art with fabric, fiber and stitching.
I am a Montana native although I have lived in other states in my journey. In addition to a background in teaching, I also enjoyed jobs in public school administration. I was fortunate to work in the area of technology education with Apple in marketing and sales for several years in Colorado and Wyoming. After moving back to Montana, I traveled throughout the country doing teacher education workshops as a consultant. It is clear to me now that my work is my art. It is my heart and my soul.
