About

Hello, All. My name is Kimberly Wiessner (Weez-ner). I’m the artist, designer, maker, head of operations, accountant, shipper and inventory tracker behind Kim Wiessner Makes Art. My artwork is vibrant and celebrates color. It is positively charged, humble, hard-working and it comes from a place of patience and calm. The creative process of art making represents the joy in my life (my family, friends and rescued dog, Lola). I am a lover of animals, outdoor adventures, mid-century style, early morning runs, black coffee, live music and travel.

Restoring balance on our planet and protecting endangered species is my passion and 15% of proceeds go to carefully chosen organizations to help support this effort.

BACKGROUND
I’m a mother of two small kids, a wife and a perpetual rescue dog owner. In 2014, I left my career as a global creative director to stay home with my kids and begin the journey of chasing a small dream that I held deep in my heart for many, many years. It is the dream that my immigrant grandparents chased in their generation. The dream I watched my father work so hard to envisage for himself and for us; the dream of owning a humble and hardworking small business. Kim Wiessner Makes Art is my dream.

I am passionate, hardworking and thankful for the opportunity to give this dream a go. It is crucial to acknowledge that without the support of my family, friends and YOU; I could not do this. Your purchase is the fuel that supports my journey and growth.

Every purchase at Kim Wiessner Makes Art improves the planet. Your support of my work makes a direct and positive impact on the conservation of animal populations on this planet. It also inspires me to make more, work harder and give back to this planet in bigger and better ways. High five to you and here’s to making the planet a better place for future generations.
