Biography from Morris & Whiteside Galleries:
Although Kim English lives with his wife, Andi, in an idyllic Colorado mountain setting, it is the lure of travel and the inspiration of everyday cityscapes, sensuous interior scenes and intimate figure studies that are characteristic of his paintings. With regular visits to Europe (at least once a year) and Mexico (twice each year), English also finds time for visits to other locations.

An early riser, at home and away, Kim English greets the light of each new day with the anticipation and enthusiasm of an explorer.

Inspired by the  contemporary painter, Richard Schmidt, English works in the alla prima method of painting, trying to complete each painting in one sitting.  On the road, he completes quick pencil sketches and small color studies that can be done in five to ten minutes, and while he might also gather reference materials with a camera for use back in the studio, he insists upon drawing and painting on site to grasp the dimensionality of each subject he selects to explore.

Born into a famiy of musicians, Kim English is an accomplished pianist and composer, and he has described the similarity of energy in music and painting: rhythm, movement, balance as integral to the simplicity he strives to achieve in each of his canvases.

English's formal art training was completed at Denver's Rocky Mountain School of Art in 1979 where he later taught until the mid 1980's.  Since that time he has won national acclaim for his work including the Allied Artists of America's Gold Medal of Honor, the William Meyerowicz Memorial Award for an American Scene and the Salmagundi Club's Joseph Hartly Memorial Award for an oil painting.

Biography from Smith Killian Fine Art:
Colorado-based painter, Kim English, depicts in his paintings the simple beauty found in daily life. Known for his mastery of chiaroscuro, he creates each piece to speak to the true focus of English’s inspiration—the harmony existing between light and shadow. His subject matter ranging from a street-side fruit stand in Mexico to sun filled windows, creates a particular mood, through which the viewer is introduced to charming scenarios that are wrapped in depth and texture, and are entirely about paint. This is the primary force of English’s painting—his astonishing manipulation of his medium. He strives to maintain a feeling of spontaneity by completing each painting in one sitting—the alla prima method. He says of using this method, “Immediacy is important. Not only because it is often the nature of people, but for me it is the most instinctive way to paint.”

English was born in 1957 in Omaha, Nebraska and raised in a rural community near Colorado Springs. After graduation from the Rocky Mountain School of Art, he joined the faculty and later began teaching at the Art Students League of Denver and the Scottsdale Artists School.

He has exhibited at the Allied Artists of America winning the Gold Medal of Honor; the National Academy of Design; the Artists of America-Denver Rotary Club; NAWA 21st Annual Exhibition; Arts for the Parks; the Colorado Governor's Invitational - Loveland Museum; the A.R. Mitchell Memorial Museum of Western Art; The Knickerbocker 42nd Annual Exhibition; the Oil Painters of America and won both the Certificate of Merit and the Joseph Hartley Memorial Award at two Salmagundi Club Exhibitions.
