About the Artist

Striving to capture the rawness and moodiness of life, Sammy Kimura paints with loose and bold brushstrokes, sacrificing perfection for emotion. Her work explores topics such as lust, longing, and the struggle that comes with self-identification and acceptance . A Louisville, Kentucky native, Kimura recently relocated to California where she fitfully creates paintings in her Echo Park studio.
