About the Artist
Kim Cohen’s goal as an artist is to evoke emotion from the viewer. Her unique style and technique varies depending on her inspiration, often incorporating pops of color, mixed media, digital, oil and acrylic paint. Kim captures the realistic essence of her subject, while adding her personal flair to impact the painting and create something memorable.
Kim’s passion and love for art began at a young age, winning a national drawing contest at age 7. She continued to pursue art as a career, after receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Art Education at the University of Maryland. Kim taught art classes at Walt Whitman High School, preparing students for college art programs and careers of their own. After teaching Kim started a clothing company called Cutie Pie, designing original children's clothing and accessories for retailers.
Currently she teaches individual and small group private art classes to adults with varying abilities in her art studio. Kim cultivates each students’ artistic talent, while incorporating meditation and mindfulness as a foundation for her teaching style. She inspires her students to appreciate and see the world differently.
Kim resides in Potomac, Maryland with her family. Her work is currently featured at various art shows, restaurants and private residences around the country. Kim continues to pursue her own art education, while studying under a master artist.
