My name is Kimberly Lavelle. What separates my work from that of other artists is that my intent with my work is to capture and honor the unique spirit of your pet in watercolor. I work from photos and especially enjoy capturing the essence of the life I see shining out through their eyes.
Two of my pieces are featured in Brad Wheler's book 'Cat Sayings wit and wisdom from the whiskered ones' published in September 2012.
My three entries to the 2012, Richeson 75 International School of Art and Gallery's fine art contest are published in their book 'Animals Birds and Wildlife 2012'.
Four pieces of my work are featured in the 'International Contemporary Artists' art book, volume VIII published by I.C.A. in 2014. I am very pleased for my work to also be in 'International Contemporary Artists' art book, volume IX being published in November, 2014!
I donate original artwork and custom animal portraits to The Fort Collins Cat Rescue and the Rocky Mountain Raptor program which do wonderful things for the animals and raptors in our community. I also donate to local horse rescues, firefighter and victim funds and the Colorado Hunter Jumper Association. It is wonderful to be able to help, albeit in a small way to those in need within our community.
My art is represented at Madison and Main in Greeley, Colorado and Rabbask and The Lincoln Gallery in Loveland, Colorado.
