Artist , Designer & Illustrator


Hi, I'm Kimma Smith ~ I’m a self-taught artist and am head-over-heels in love with watercolor and mixed media. I'm inspired by nature, color, and watercolor itself. Watercolor does enchanting things all on it’s on. Truly magical things happen by simply dropping watercolor into other wet colors or just dropping color into a clear wet spot on watercolor paper, and letting the watercolor do its thing. Adding splashes of water and sprinkles of salt do spellbinding things, causing blooms of magic to appear before your eyes. As I’m sure you can tell, watercolor has captured my heart and soul. It never fails to engage my mind and delight my inner child.
