Originally from Chattanooga TN, Kimberly Dawn spent many a summer vacation at Myrtle Beach and developed a liking for life at the beach. To that end, she moved there and supported herself by painting on found bottles and selling them. Soon she found herself painting on anything that stood still; windows, doors, hubcaps, skateboards and furniture all with a story worth telling through her brush. She was recycling long before it was "a thing". Over 20 years later she continues to paint happy moments.
