**1. PIUM: Hey Kimberly! Your art is amazing, seriously. How do your different cultural influences inspire your creative process?**

Kimberly: Before I create, I pray. This brings me close to God, and from there, I try to take myself out of it. Then I can create something amazing. I feel that I’m in touch with the colors because of my Native American side and African roots. I love color. I love a 3-dimensional look. I started to add a different layer look in the late 90’s.
