Raised in a log cabin in the woods, Kim Ferreira now lives in Portsmouth, NH, a lovely little city by the sea. Her work is inspired by simple pleasures and the exuberant enjoyment of life, what the French refer to as “joie de vivre”. These small-scale oil paintings feature an array of anthropomorphic woodland animals against a backdrop nodding to french rococo landscapes and celebrate the little things that bring her joy.
This collection of "Aeronauts" is an extension of my recent series of flying machines inspired by Leonardo DaVinci, the Adventures of Goldie and Bear and my own childhood longings. Their heads are in the clouds, they dream of what lies over the rainbow, and believe that anything is possible.
