Art has always been a part of Kimberly English’s life. As a child she would spend her time drawing characters from VCR boxes and comic strip clippings from the local newspaper. When entering high school, Kimberly was chosen to be in the first class of Salem County Vocational Technical School’s Art Academy hosted at Arthur P. Schalick High School. After high school, she continued her education through the NJ Stars I & II scholarship at Salem Community College and Rowan University where she studied under world-renowned acrylic landscape artist, Daniel Chard.
In May of 2010, Kimberly English graduated Summa Cum Laude from Rowan University with a B.A. in Art Education and a B.A. in K-12 Subject-Matter Teaching. She is an acrylic landscape painter and certified art teacher who has taught as a tenured teacher at Mary E. Roberts Elementary School in Moorestown and Gloucester County College. After the birth of her daughter, Kimberly resigned as a public school teacher and has focused on teaching art privately to children and adults, which allows her the flexibility to put her family and art career first. She resides with her husband, Chester, and their children, Courtney and Kent, in the rural farming town of Aldine, NJ. The surroundings provide endless subject matter and artistic inspiration while the atmosphere offers the opportunity for reflection.
