theStudio Artist of the Week…

 

Kim Buchheit, Graphic and Surface Pattern Designer, Arizona

Kim Buchheit is a graphic and surface pattern designer who works with clients to develop unique creative solutions and inspired designs. Her portfolio includes a signature, hand-drawn, hand-carved linocut series which combines traditional rendering with digital coloring and production methods.

“I love seeing the artist’s hand in the work and that’s one of my goals with this collection. The hand-inked and hand-printed illustration allows for beautiful and surprising tonal variations in the line art which complement the predominantly organic subject matter.” 

After obtaining a BA in art, Kim worked as a designer and art director for several publishing companies and high-profile non-profit organizations throughout Arizona, including the Scottsdale Center for the Arts and theGrand Canyon Association. As a twenty-year resident of Grand Canyon National Park, Kim’s artistic approach draws heavily upon her deep connection to the natural world.
