Talent is all around us!

Artwork by Kim Kwaz

We live in a small sub in Michigan and I have to say I don't know a lot of our neighbors...yes, we nod and say hello and I know all the dog owners...of course.  My  next door neighbor (they have 3 dogs!)  I consider more like family, so we  talk often and take care of each others homes and dogs!
One neighbor, Kim, across the street from us, I have talked with over the years and knew she was an artist, but  I've never seen her work in person.  I happened to talk with her this past weekend  while walking the girls and she mentioned she was having an exhibit in November.  She gave me one of her cards advertising the exhibit and WOW...I am very impressed!   This is a painting that is on her business card!

Kim's (Kwaz) work is amazing!  I just went to her web site and the only word I can think of is WOW!  Her portraits are fantastic!!  All of her work is good but I'm fascinated by her portraits.  My hubby also looked at her site and said "she is really good!" me...he doesn't give compliments out easily!  HA  We both couldn't decide which painting we liked best!

You have to go to her website to really appreciate all of the different media she works in!  Her web site is called Kim Kwaz Art.

And if you're in the Lapeer area November 23-December 2nd, stop by The Gallery at Beyer's Furniture to see Kim's exhibit.  I don't think you'll be disappointed!  I may grab one of my buds to make a trip to see her work....or maybe just walk across the street!  Guess we all should do never know what talent lurks behind closed doors in your neighborhood!


  1. Funny how we meet our neighbors and really don’t know them until one day...WOW.

  2. I’m always fascinated with portraits……and envy the talent that creates them. I can draw a stick man….but that’s where my skill ends!

  3. I agree with Sherry. I knew my neighbors well years ago, but as they have passed on I know very little about the ones that have moved into their homes. But I DO know where the dogs live, lol.
