Kim Nickens- Artist
I grew up surrounded by art and artists. I am one of the lucky ones. Both of my parents were creatives. My father, Darcy Efraimson has been my main inspiration for art. My mother, Carol Efraimson inspired me artistically, but was much more influencial on who I am as a person. My dad had a love of paper and created many things in that medium. It wasn't until he passed that I discovered my love of paper and what I could create with it.
 
I feel so lucky to have found this passion at this point in my life. I so enjoy the process as well as the art community. I have experienced such generosity, support, inspiration and kindness from the artists I have met these past couple years at various art festivals, farmers markets and last, first and somewhere in the middle art walks.
