Kim Bova

Artists Open Studio Dates:

November 27, 28 & December 4, 5

Growing up in an artistic family shaped Kim's path in life.  Photography captured her attention since her father was an avid photographer and the simple and elegant beauty the work of Elliot Porter was inspirational to her.  She learned by her father’s side how to use a camera, which became an integral part of her life.  Even though she was trained as a classical pianist earning a Masters from Eastman School of Music she always had a camera nearby.  

When starting a family upon returning to CT in the 1990's, she enrolled at in the Photography program at UCONN's Fine Art School.  Her kids were her subjects at first and she enjoyed photographing life around her. Once she realized that she had been training for this her whole life, she started her own business of Wedding and Portrait Photography and never looked back.  Now, as she retires from her Wedding and Portrait business she has time to concentrate on her own personal vision as an art photographer. 

 

Artist Statement:
I create photographs of the natural world including: flowers, landscapes, still-life, and places traveled. Printing in a dark room is no longer available to me, however, I print on various surfaces- wood, paper, metal, and acrylic. I also offer my own hand printed Giclee ink transfer prints. I can add mica or acrylic paint to the mix making each print unique and ‘one of a kind’.
