Kim Rayner, primarily an oil painter, works from her studio nestled amongst the palm-fringed beauty of Bingil Bay in the wet tropics of Far North Queensland.
A connection to nature provides soulful and earthed inspiration for Kim. Since completing a Bachelor of Fine Art at the National Art School, Darlinghurst, Sydney, Kim has travelled extensively overseas and within Australia, all the while developing her own perceptive, contemporary style.
She moves easily between painting, drawing, photography and jewellery and her work has been described as poetic, timeless and organic.
Kim has been involved in various group exhibitions over the past 16 years, from Sydney and North Stradbroke Island to Mission Beach, Townsville and Cairns, Australia. As well as solo exhibitions at Mission Arts in 2011, The Far North and in 2012, Music, Birds and Trees.
She also teaches groups of inspired students painting with oils and drawing.
