Kim Schalk

 

STATEMENT

My father was a biologist, my mother is an artist, and I am somewhere in the middle. My best pieces are often inspired by something I literally threw over a mannequin and had a "Viola" moment. So I definitely understand the beauty of an accident! 

I am all for conservation (the environment, manpower, money -all of it). Call me anti-waste. I also feel very strongly about supporting the infrastructure of the USA. Buy American made and produced in the USA.

My father would always say "take care of your people", and that is what I do! It is so important to treat human beings with kindness and respect. Treat people how you want to be treated.
