Beautiful Fine Art Originals
Art that inspires the imagination!
My name is Kim Heath and I live in Sun Valley in the lower Blue Mountains.
I am an international artist who works mainly with melted beeswax (encaustics) and I love the total freedom it gives me to create beautiful artworks. I also work using glass mosaics, oils & acrylics.
My gallery is open the first weekend in every month, so please visit to experience the joy of seeing my glorious creations for yourself.
After running my own beauty business for fifteen years, in which I was a makeup artist and colour consultant, I turned to art as a way of expressing my desire to create something new. So I enrolled in art classes at the Springwood Art Centre, using pastels as my medium, which I enjoyed, but was not what I was looking for. Then I discovered encaustics! I completed some workshops, including a week at the Summer School at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst. I found my new passion! I am brimming with ideas and very excited about exploring this amazing medium even further, combining the wax with mixed media and tempered glass mosaic. Each of my creations is totally unique and something you have never encountered before.
I have sold to overseas clients as well as locals and many of my pieces have been hung in various art galleries and exhibitions in the mountains and elsewhere. I have also done work by commission. I am a participant in the BMAN Arts Trails each year, and have had an exhibition of my work at Gallery One88 in Katoomba and another at Grenfell Gallery. I also run workshops at my studio.
My studio/gallery in Sun Valley in the lower Blue Mountains is now open the first weekend in every month, or whenever you'd like to call in. Just ring first, and I will open for you so you can experience and enjoy my unique artworks for yourself. It may be just what you are looking for!
