Thorn And Thistle
Asheville artist Kim Dills combines her background in design and illustration, love of textiles and patterns, and appreciation of wood to create unique, one-of-a-kind wall art.
Kim grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. She was introduced to art at an early age by her paternal grandmother, who was a weaver. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at East Carolina University, where she studied design and illustration. Upon graduation, Kim moved to Boulder and began taking weaving and fiber arts classes while working at the University of Colorado. In 2000, she moved back East and made Asheville area her home. She raised Angora goats and Cotswold sheep for wool to incorporate in her fiber works and started taking classes in traditional Japanese fiber dyeing and resist techniques.
Her current body of work explores the combination of oils, hand-mixed stains, and glazes on wood. She finds inspiration from patterns in textiles and nature.
Kim is a signature member of the Piedmont Craftsmen’s Guild. She lives in Asheville with her husband, Jon (a potter), and her two dogs, Arlo and Penny.
