Growing up on a Maryland farm, Kim Muller-Thym has always loved nature, being outdoors and sailing. She paints mostly coastal scenes of water and sky and is recognized for her ability to capture moments of weather and light. Her paintings can be dramatic and moody often inspiring a sense of serenity and peace.
Kim is represented in galleries from Virginia to Nova Scotia, some which include the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport Museum, Mystic, CT, where she won the John Stobart Award in 2006; the Academic Artists Association in MA; The Hudson Valley Art Association; The Salmagundi Art Club in New York, where she is a member and the Yale New Haven Hospital has 18 of her paintings in their collection.
Kim has a BA in German literature and MFA in applied psychology. She spent a year in graduate studies at the Institute of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where she studied ceramics. For many years she was a ceramics student and graphics instructor at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD. She also spent 30 years in journalism as a writer, editor, and prize winning art director.
She lives with her husband, Marvin Haltzer, on the Connecticut shoreline where she is continually inspired by water and sky in all sorts or weather. The constant challenge to capture the light and vibrancy is evident in her impressionistic oil paintings.
