After a career in the high stress 24-7 computer industry, Kimmi was able to turn her passion for art into a reality when she moved to Washington in 2003. Now, Kimmi creates ceramics full-time and also does part-time accountant work as a QuickBooks Pro Advisor. “Some say I’m schizophrenic, but I like to think that I’m using BOTH sides of my brain! I chose ceramics because it combines my love of painting and the need to work with my hands. For me, color is therapy, so my pieces are usually brightly colored and fun. I enjoy creating tiles to beautify home and garden spaces and that make you smile.”
Community involvement is important to Kimmi. She has been a board member of Artisan Tile North West in Seattle and the Westport South Beach Historical Society. Kimmi is a past president of the South Beach Arts Association and is currently the organization’s treasurer.
Kimmi Kerns lives by the beach in Westport with her husband, Larry and a very spoiled retired racing greyhound named Bonzi.
As well as creating coasters, trivets and tile art, Kimmi accepts commissions for tile work for fireplaces, kitchen, bath and outdoor spaces.
