About Kim Knoll

Kim feels most at peace exploring the land around us. Her connection with nature comes from a love for the outdoors and has become her main source of inspiration.


Being surrounded by the buzz of city life makes me seek out calm and stillness through painting. Using a combination of watercolor paint, India ink, gold and graphite, my work is an abstract interpretation of memories and moments from my time spent in nature. I always feel a sense of peace and wonder when I’m exploring the land around us. With each painting, I try to capture those feelings and bring the outdoors in. Each work is numbered according to the order in which they were created, and also represents the number of paintings I completed in my life at that time.


Kim Knoll lives and works in Chicago, not far from Half Acre Brewery. Her days are spent working alongside her husband at Knoed, their two-person graphic design studio. Kim’s minimal and modern aesthetic with graphic design translates over to her paintings, where ideas are simplified and stripped down to basic forms.
