Native to the San Francisco Bay Area and a graduate of San Francisco’s Academy of Art University, pastel artist Kim Lordier’s landscapes combine keen sensitivity to quality of light and masterful use of color. She’s happy in all the varied landscapes of her native state, from the coast to the valleys, to the desert and the mountains. She sometimes joins Paul Kratter’s “Granite Group” on its annual summer High Sierra painting trips. With honors that include being a Signature Member of the California Art Club, Kim’s paintings are in private collections throughout the country, and have been exhibited at the Autry Museum, Coors Western Art Show in Denver, National Arts Club NY, Haggin Museum, Forbes Galleries, Pasadena Museum of California Art, Irvine Museum and the Laguna Art Museum.
“To me, the ability to portray the convincing effect of true natural light is the noblest calling of a landscape painter. Kim has earned my respect.” –Jean Stern, Executive Director of the Irvine Museum
