A little About Kim
Kim Brooks is considered to be one true pioneers who help wildlife art to become recognised as fine art (Wildlife Art Journal 1999) Born in St Albans, England in 1936, Kim was a graduate in fine art at St Albans Collage of Art, although she is mainly self taught. Her images have adorned the front catalogue covers of world auction houses Christie’s and Sotheby’s where her paintings and sculptures have consistently fetched or exceeded their asking price.
Kim approaches her art with modesty and apparent ease, producing exquisite paintings of exotic endangered species of birds and mammals of the world, see her book Africa to the Amazon The Art & Travels of Kim Brooks that lets you follow her extensive worldwide travels researching her subjects and their habitat.
In 1972. Kim had her first solo exhibition in Bond Street London, since then she has had successful exhibitions around the world including, New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Antonio Texas, Nairobi. In 1979 Kim took first gold awards at the Wildlife Artist International Exhibition in Phoenix Arizona, following this she was England’s representative artist at the 1980 World Wilderness Congress in Johannesburg South Africa.
Kim has been a passionate fund raiser over many years, she states she owes her success to the animals and birds of the world, this has motivated her to pay back her debt to the many endangered species they can be found in her paintings.
In 1998, both Kim and husband Bill visited some of the most remotest regions of the Amazon River in Peru, they witnessed several raft like boats laden with full size tree trunks, the life blood of the forest on its way to the lumber yards and pulp mills, when returning to London they contacted the Rainforest Foundation, founded by the musician Sting and his wife Trudie Styler.
Kim and husband Bill invited a group of fellow artist around the world to support her in a fund raising exhibition in Mayfair London 2002. It raised some $150.000 for the Rainforest Foundation.
