This week on Women Warriors (Nov 30th at noon ET), our special guest is Kim Chesney, artist and fund-raiser extraordinaire.   Kim is going to discuss the topic of “Creating Your Own Enthusiasm for Your Success.”


Born with the name of Painter, Kim Painter Chesney was destined to become an artist. With years of working, child-rearing and fund-raising for child-related nonprofit organizations, there is no task too big for Kim to tackle. Her biggest joy to date is being a match for a bone marrow harvest, saving the life of a gentleman with leukemia. Kim’s creative juices are always flowing, from developing a culinary arts program for impoverished kids to donating art to charities and designing and running fundraising events that are wildly successful.  Kim brings commitment, enthusiasm and energy to everything to which she jumps on board.


As an artist, she has studied in several mediums including oil, watercolor and graphite. Currently, she is immersed in developing her own brand of encaustic painting, in which the works are both sculpted and painted. She began showing her work in 2008 and has gained recognition and won awards for her paintings, which hang in a number of private collections. Her work has been featured in several local publications. Kim has studied with acclaimed artists/instructors, among them, Marc Chatov, Jerry Fresia, Joe Paquet and James Richards.


In moving around the United States and abroad, including living in Tokyo, as well as her extensive travels, she has found art to be a valuable way to assimilate. “Art is a universal language, that unites us,” she says. That belief is directing her current work on a major series of encaustic paintings exploring and celebrating common humanity, drawn from her experiences across six continents.
