Gina Lee Kim
Originally from San Francisco Bay Area, Gina Lee Kim is a self-taught watercolorist with a nursing and biology background. Gina’s artistic vision is to amaze the eye and empower the heart. Her secret to painting is to let color be the creative and compassionate driving force rather than executing a perfectly rendered illustration first. In her new book, “Fast & Fun Watercolor Painting Techniques: No Drawing Required (North Light Books), Gina takes you on a prismatic journey through the color wheel using beautiful watercolor pigments and mixed-media elements as a joyful artistic approach and a source of inspiration. After being published in several magazines, Gina was asked to create four watercolor art lessons for Cloth Paper Scissors (Interweave) and four watercolor workshop DVDs/videos exploring textures, resists, monoprinting and watermedia (Artist Network). She lives north of Chicago with her husband and their young son, who is really into space. You can visit Gina at ginaleekim.com.
