Kimberly Balla graduated with a BFA in Fine Arts from Western Washington University in 2013. At Western she stumbled upon her signature technique. This technique was discovered by long hours of experimentation. Kimberly found that combining three different oil paint mediums allowed for a unique chemical reaction to occur. This reaction formed unusual 3D-like fractal patterns and geological groves throughout the oil paint surface. She intends for her dreamscapes to transport the viewer to a new world, a world of forms which are familiar, yet unfamiliar.
