Kim joined the Art Mania staff last year. She teachs our kids classes, including pottery for kids and teens.
How did you come to be at Art Mania Studios?
Kim “I first joined by taking a pottery class on a Saturday afternoon, and it all started from there.”
Kim is one of the bright flames that light up the weekend group. Always happy, always ready to offer a fellow student a helping hand when needed. And often laughing, as much at herself as at anything going on in the group. Kim has worked as a primary school teacher and in the foster care system. She was often working with and supporting children with special needs and this is one of her passions.
How do you see yourself fitting into Art Mania’s vision?
Kim “I consider Art Mania as a family- supporting everyone who joins the various classes. And I’m a part of that. I also bring an Indigenous perspective to our programs.”
Kim is also an indigenous woman. She brings that uniqueness into our team. This enables her to teach the children many things about her culture, making our team even more skilled and diverse.
She describes her family as one that have always supported her to do whatever she’s wanted to achieve in her life.
She is a huge fan of squirrels, despite having been chased out of a London park by a vengeful pack of them.
Kim is also into all things Disneyland.
