Zamora, Kimberly


Artist Statement

I have a passion for fashion and art and my work constantly crosses the boundaries of both. I don't label myself a painter or print maker, as not to limit my creativity. My inspiration comes from life experiences, ever evolving transitions, and personal passions. I take random materials such as fabric, wood, wire, metal, paper, or organic substances to design sculptures, jewelry, two dimensional mix media works and clothing.
