Kim Fields graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Advertising. She went on to build a career in television production , winning three Emmy Awards while at Chicago's superstation - WGN-TV. Throughout her career, Kim continued to explore numerous outlets for expressing her passion for the arts.
On a whim, in 1999, Kim took a beginner's lampworking class. Just a year later she found that working with glass was so fulfilling , she decided to leave her 20-year corporate career behind and devote herself completely to the art of glass beadmaking and jewellery design. Kim has taught at many of the most prestigious glass studios throughout the U.S. as well as in Europe and Japan. Her recent work can be seen at shows, galleries , and in numerous publications.
Nature has always informed and inspired my creativity , and it is the primary influence for my beads. Through the colours and textures of each bead design , I strive to capture a small reflection of natures beauty. As a birdwatcher , birds are a natural inspiration and using a sculptural approach , I strive to capture the bird in greater detail. Lampworking is a growth process for me and I will continue to explore new ways to express myself through glass.
