“There is nothing more satisfying than creating a piece of art that someone wants to make part of their life and personal space. Surrounding oneself with beautiful things brings joy, promotes thought, and calms the mind.” KIM ROMERO is an impressionistic abstract painter, whose natural attraction to the relationship between colors and textures is not surprising given her thirty years experience in interior décor, food presentation, and garden design. Her paintings grow out of a visual personal experience; tactile and painterly pieces that illicit feelings and emotional triggers and connections that arouse a feeling of intrigue and calm. Over the last eight years, the Southport resident has mostly self-taught while studying at The Silvermine Art Center in New Canaan, CT. Since 2010, she has been seen and represented by several galleries and fine design shops dedicated to emerging artists. She has exhibited as part of Westport and Greenwich, Connecticut’s town wide art and has been part of a group exhibition at The Union League Club in NYC. Ms. Romero is one of Southport Galleries original “Abstract Women”and an inspiration for this exhibition!
