Hey! I'm Kimberly

I'm a furniture artist and educator who's painted more than 1,200 pieces since first picking up my brush in 2015. 

When I started painting furniture, I found it impossible to find actually useful information about this industry online. I decided to change that. 


Between my free downloads, Instagram and Youtube channel, and self-paced classes, you're destined to find just what you're looking for here. (And if not, I offer one-on-one consultations!)


I'm passionate about helping furniture refinishers like you make beautifully painted pieces that sell for more money. I can’t wait to help you, too!

My one-on-one session with Kimberly was invaluable. She answered all my newbie questions and really helped me gain the confidence I needed to aspire as a furniture painter. She was up on all the trends I was reading about, and probably set some of those in motion herself!
