Kim Brown is an artist and graphic designer currently working with textiles and fiber. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Textile Design from University of California, Davis and continued her career as a graphic designer working for companies such as Apple Computer, Adobe, and Atari. No longer working in the technical industry, Kim’s new work focuses on nature inspired themes and is all about "fiber". She uses local plants for fabric dyes and eco printing. She transforms her fabrics into scarfs, clothing, and book arts. She enjoys using traditional textile techniques in new and creative ways.
Currently she has a studio at The Alameda Artworks in San Jose, where she spends time felting with wool and silk fibers, and dyeing fabrics with natural dyes. Instead of a blank piece of paper, she starts her creations with a blank, usually white piece of silk or wool.
