Ann Kim is a 2-D mixed-media artist based in Dayton who grew up in California and South Korea. She has a BFA in Art Practice and BA in Art History from UC Berkeley and an MFA in Studio Art from Mills College.

Ever since she can remember, her work has been concerned with “fusions, clashes, and assimilations” of opposing elements, and her current work is focused on on myths and collective cultural narratives.

Her work has been exhibited nationally and has received numerous grants, fellowships, and awards including the Murphy & Cadogan Fellowship from San Francisco Arts Commission, Sarah Lewis Painting Fellowship, IU New Frontiers Exploratory Travel Grant in Arts and Humanities, and IU Summer Faculty Fellowship. She has recently completed an artist residency program at the Rensing Center in South Carolina and has been awarded a residency at Brush Creek Ranch for 2016.

She is currently an Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at Indiana University East in Richmond, IN and lives in Dayton, OH with her husband and two cats.
