Kim Glass has worked full-time as a freelance artist since 1997. Her work has appeared on the covers of numerous books on a wide variety of topics, from gardening and cookery to post-natal depression and meditation. Other commissions include theatre posters,greetings cards and a large scale mural for the National Maritime Museum Greenwich London. Work is made using a variety of print-making techniques including etching, collagraph, silk screen and linocut. She also paints in oils and ink and draws in charcoal. She creates highly individual images on a number of themes, sometimes abstract compositions that are mostly celebrations of colour, sometimes figurative, or illustrated fragments of a narrative. There is a strong narrative element to much of her work and many images include text as part of the composition. Kim participates in the Brighton Festival each year. Her Open House was recently Shortlisted for a prize. She exhibits new work at Brighton Fishing Museum each summer. Drawing is part of her way of life. Sketchbooks and the daily discipline of recording are central to her working method, her books have won an award(The Uckfield Decorative and Fine Art Society 2000)and formed part of her first solo exhibition 2003. Her work is sold in galleries throughout Britain as well as Brighton Museum and Royal Pavilion shop. This year she has sought to expand her horizons towards the wider community and use her experience with young people. She has undertaken a short residency in a school working on a portrait project devised for children from reception to Yr 6. Some beautiful work was produced by the pupils. She is involved in working with older students at a local secondary school.
