About Me

Kimberly A. Howsley

 Hawaii born, Kimberly Howsley is an artist with ties to both Hawaii and Italy.  Evidence of growing up on Oahu is prevalent in all of her work and her living, studying, and teaching in Tuscany for twenty years has greatly influenced her style, themes, and choices of art mediums.  She is the only certified fresco painter in Hawaii, has a Master’s degree in Art and Art therapy, and most recently works primarily with Watercolor and Encaustic. Her work is tied together by beach and ocean inspired themes.   

Artist Statement


Leaving one home for the other, and peering down from a window on the jet plane, 

I see my land and my ocean drift away. 

An anticipation for the new and sadness for what was abandoned.

A yin and a yang.

A Search For Peace.

Spirits of ancient ancestors support a sense of excitement, of expectation and mystery with every brush stroke of molten bee's wax in this collection of paintings.

A yin occurs as the wax hardens.

Moments later the yang reappears when the wax is fused with a flame.

A balance is achieved.

A Peace Has Been Created.
