Wiggins, Kim

Artist Kim Wiggins gre up on a ranch in Southern New Mexico,and began his art

career sculpting miniatures of the wildlife around him. Influenced by his

father, a nationally recognized photojournalist, and mother, a pioneer rodeo

cowgirl, he was encouraged at an early age to pursue the arts.

By the time Wiggins was fourteen he began painting in oil and was working

nights and weekends as a graphic artist for a national equine magazine.

Wiggins' paintings have evolved with a unique, dramatic style. He populates

his dynamic, bold canvases with ribbons of color, bulbous clouds,

expressionistic mountains, sinewy trees and distorted houses.

Among the youngest artists listed in Who's Who in American Art, Wiggins has

been featured in several magazines including a cover story in Wildlife Art

magazine. Wiggins has exhibited his work throughout the country and paintings

are in the permanent collections of the several museums including The Autry

Museum of Western Heritage.
