Kimberly Berg grew up amongst the rolling, pastoral hills of Wisconsin. After graduating from the
University of Wisconsin with a degree in history, he moved to New York City with the intention of becoming a writer. That
idea did not lead to the publishing success that he had hoped for. After four years living in the city, he decided to
move to upstate New York where he built a small cabin in the Adirondack Park.
Berg now lives a Zen-influenced life
of voluntary simplicity creating paintings and sketches that often reflect the quiet, meditative world that surrounds him.
He likes to work with pastels in a lyrical, minimalist style using a very limited palette. He believes that such art
can possess strong, transforming powers and it is these powers he tries to evoke in his art.
Kimberly Berg is a member
of the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts in Plattsburgh, New York. For the last four years he has been in charge
of a Life Drawing group at the Center.
Berg's work has been shown locally, the New York Art Expo '07 and in many national and international competitions
where he has received several awards. He is a member of the prestigious international Society for Art of the Imagination,
Writers and Poets, and the Woman's Art Caucus. He has had artwork published and reviewed in numerous art catalogs, magazines
and newspapers including the New York based GALLERY & STUDIO MAGAZINE. He manages his own online website at IsisRising.net.
