KIMISHA TURNER STUDIOS
Washington native and Cornish College Alum, Kimisha Turner creates work influencing self-reflection, empowerment and social awareness. Graduating with a B. A. in Fine Arts with an emphasis in printmaking and photography, it’s no surprise that her work varies in application and medium on a regular basis. It is common for her to learn a new medium in order to properly convey her conceptual vision. From photography to mosaic, wood carving to paint, performance art to printmaking, she is truly invested in being a well-rounded “creator”.
You may have seen Kimisha painting for Mayor Murray beautifying the neighborhood, lead an art class at Kids Quest Children’s Museum or display her commissioned mosaics for Seattle’s Fortune’s Bones Project. Maybe you caught her working the Folklife Festival on behalf of Nature Consortium, empowering youth to create art with natural resources.
STG’s Paramount Theater, Hillman City Collaboratory, Experience Music Project and The Northwest African American Museum are a few organizations to partner with Kimisha for her work. Influenced by experimentation and social empowerment she uses layers and beauty as a way to draw attention to more poignant issues. Frida Kahlo, Artemisia Gentileschi, and Salvador Dali are a few of her favorite visual influences due to their undeniable focus on their authentic expression. Her mission is to create beautiful, thought provoking and love infused art for all to absorb.
