Oh I am so thrilled to share with you guys this profile! Kimberly Sly is a Portland based artist who makes those killer cityscapes you’ve probably seen hanging in your favorite shop or on your favorite design blog. Her story is the best kind of story, because she made a career switch 8 years ago and never looked back.
Kimberly has been an artist her whole life, but for many years it was a hobby instead of her profession. Corporate recruiting was the job she started after college and continued because she thought she wouldn’t be able to make a living as an artist. Then a couple major life experiences happened simultaneously that made her reevaluate things. Her first son was born, and her father in law passed away suddenly. During maternity leave she thought, why not atleast try to make art her job?
