Kim Hill-Goddette, Artist
Kim Hill-Goddette was born in Northern Ohio and raised in Southeastern Michigan. Hill-Goddette creates acrylic paintings of Abstract Expressionist style. She completed independent art studies in high school, served in the U.S. Army 1986-1997, and completed a B.A. in Art from Siena Heights University in 1992. Her works include representations of land, sea, space, and cityscapes. She uses design elements, with particular sensitivity to color, movement, and texture; using her hands, brushes, palette knives, and intuitive guidance to create dynamic and engaging works.
Hill-Goddette has exhibited and sold works at various venues including Adrian Center for Creative Development, Croswell Opera House Gallery, Affirmations Pittmann-Puckett Gallery, Just-4-Us Gallery, and 1st Thursdays held at the Orlando Museum of Art.
Hill-Goddette was named “Central Florida Artist of the Week” the third week of Sept. 2018, by Ed Herbst, President of the Associates of the Orlando Museum of Art. She has also been Special Recognition (“Leaves-Purple”) and Special Merit Awards (“Antarctica” and “Sailing”) for work exhibited with Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery.
Hill-Goddette lives in Sanford, Florida with her wife, Lori, and their cat, Benny. They share parenthood of four adult children. She is grateful to create art full-time and looks forward to expanding her business nationally and internationally.
I create art in an act of conscious and unconscious expression. I look forward to seeing what will materialize on the canvas. I enjoy the process, although it can sometimes be a challenge to get it to all come together. That is the nature and the wonder of it.
I am compelled to create. It is a meaningful way to engage my senses, human curiosity, history, emotional release, soul and Universal guidance. I want to see what it will become and how people react to it. My art represents transition, energy, communication, seeing and feeling through a different lens.
I create art with my hands, palette knives, layering, texture, motion, and while listening to music. I find that what I am listening to does affect the process and outcome.
