"Art is what I do opposed to taking a drink. Art is what I do opposed to getting high. The process of starting with a blank canvas and watching it evolve brings me joy. Art makes me feel like I have purpose and that I am not worthless in this world."
Kimberly Williams discovered her lifelong passion for creating art when she was three years old. A native of Fort Washington, Maryland, Kim started experiencing mental health concerns and addiction early in her life, causing her to be in and out of homelessness. Kim paints therapeutically to harness focus and maintain a positive outlook on life.
Kim wants to sell her work to provide a better life for herself and her son. "It creates a sense of pride that someone would want my paintings." Kim's future goal is to give back to the community by teaching art to children.
"I want to create art that the world has never seen before."
