About the Artist
As part of a fourth generation farm family, Kim Casebeer has felt a connection to the landscape for a long time. Sometimes her paintings are dramatic; other times they are quiet and atmospheric. She has exhibited with the Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, and Pastel Society of America. She has been featured in Art of the West, Western Art Collector, and Southwest Art magazines, and in the Art of the National Parks book for her Grand Teton and Yellowstone paintings. She is represented by galleries in Arizona, Wyoming, New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
What artist inspires you? Why?
I gather inspiration from a variety of work, but one of my perennial favorites is the work of Russian Impressionist, Issak Levitan. He was a master of atmosphere and mood, and only put down what was necessary to say what he wanted to say.
How do you come up with an idea for a new piece of artwork?
Either from studies done outdoors, or thumbnails and studies done in the studio. I always start by working small to generate ideas because I can quickly try different compositions and move on if they don't work.
Where is the most inspirational place you've visited lately?
Visiting the "Edgar Payne: The Scenic Journey" exhibit at the Gilcrease Museum. It was wonderful to see the variety of textures and colors he used to suggest the landscape.
