Born and raised in Cheyenne, WY, Kim graduated in 1980 from Central High School where she discovered her love for art. She continued her art journey at Northwest College and later moved home, started a family (her biggest fans) and worked at Laramie County Community College. Art education was right at her finger tips. She took multiple art classes which included ceramics and metals. She earned her associates at LCCC and went on to complete her Bachelor’s of Arts at Ashford University. Eventually feeling the need to pick one form of art and stick with it; metal smithing was her choice. Then COVID hit in 2020, all motivation and inspiration was gone. In a leap of faith, she took a class in Colorado with her friend and now partner in Rusty Brick Pottery. After Silver Sage Ceramics was opened, they moved back to Cheyenne to continue working locally and eventually built home studios. The classes sprung a new love for pottery and now she makes functional pottery for everyday use while trying to find time to continue her work in metals. “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time” - Thomas Merton
