ARTIST FOR THE AMAZON
Jane Kim is an artist, science illustrator and the founder of Ink Dwell (www.ink-dwell.com), a studio that inspires people to love and protect the Earth one work of art at a time. A play on words, Ink Dwell studio makes art that is “inked well”, and specializes in creating fine art, environmental campaigns, exhibitions and science illustrations. Merging classical techniques of science illustration with modern simplicity, Ink Dwell creates iconic images that carries a powerful message of education and conservation.
Jane’s art career started very early in life by obsessively painting flowers and bears on the walls of her bedroom. She received more formal training at the Rhode Island School of Design and then Cal State Monterey Bay, where she received a Certificate in Science Illustration. Jane loves to be outdoors, on adventures, and brings the joy she gets from nature back to her studio. She has created works for institutions including the Amazon Aid Foundation, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, National Aquarium, de Young Museum, Smithsonian, and Yosemite National Park. She still enjoys painting flowers and bears, though nowadays she doesn’t get in trouble for painting on the walls.
