Kimberly Winkle is an educator and maker who resides in Tennessee. Winkle is a maker who creates furniture and objects using wood and paint, which combine both furniture and sculptural elements. Her work involves the scrutiny of form, color and line. While working with this vocabulary, she has toyed with the simple arrangement of the dot and line. The combination of these marks, have resulted in an exciting, somewhat quirky dialogue of characters that activates the painted surface. Her furniture forms are simple and serve as empty canvas for color and line. Her work has been shown both nationally and internationally and is a number of public and private collections. Additionally, her work has been included in several national publications, including Fine Woodworking, Woodworker, and American Woodturner magazines, and the books 500 Tables, 500 Chairs. Winkle has completed a number of artist residencies, including the International Turning Exchange at the Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia, Haystack Open Studio Residency and at the Appalachian Center for Craft.
Winkle holds a Bachelor of Fine Art in Ceramics from the University of Oklahoma and a Master of Fine Art in Furniture Design from San Diego State University.
