Galina Kim

Emerging from a musical background in my early years, I changed direction into Visual Arts, completing Master degrees in Design (Kiev College of Industrial Art) and Decorative Art (Lvov Academy of Applied Arts) in Ukraine.

While my first exhibitions dated from my university years, I have subsequently  exhibited in Europe, in New Zealand since emigrating in 1996, and in Australia. 

The rich landscape, ever changing colour and textures of both the land, and the peoples met here, and my deepening spirituality have shaped my artistic directions of abstracted contemporary acrylic and mixed  media works, through icon painting and joint collaborations with other artists.

 We live in Christchurch savouring the rebuild of the city, and the wider outdoors.
