For three decades, Kim Frohsin has worked as a studio fine artist with interdependent interests in painting, drawing, printmaking, encaustic, collage and photography.
From early in her career, her figure paintings were often said to make her a third generation Bay Area Figurative painter. Private drawing sessions with female models have been a vital practice in her work and are the starting point for her paintings.
"This collaborative ritual, begun in 1994, is a source for inner grounding and focus for me," she says. "I feel that this practice acts as baseline from which the rest of my art originates. My work is eclectic and highly autobiographical. I am a multi-disciplinary visual artist, continually pushing boundaries and evolving via personal successes and challenges to give meaning to my creative existence."
