About Kim Mosher Designs
The magnificent Outer Banks are a wonderful place to live if you happen to be an artist. The constantly changing colors and abundant wildlife are the perfect templates for the artistic mind. Kim Mosher discovered this back in 1985 while visiting with her photography class from Virginia Commonwealth University. Shortly after graduating with a degree in Communication Arts and Design, and working as a photographer at Old Dominion University, she made Hatteras Island her home.
The history and heritage of this Island have always been centered on fishing, which inspired Kim to sketch many of the inshore fish in their natural habitat. Eventually, color pencil became her tool of choice. The fine point allows her to achieve superior detail which has become this artist’s trademark. However, fine lines also mean lots of time. Many of her originals have taken over five hundred hours to complete! Over the last several years, Kim has made her art available through limited edition prints, tiles, and fabrics. Her well-loved children’s book, “Pelican and Pelicant,” published in 2003 with Sarah Froeber, is also inspired by this magical land so far out in the ocean.
Kim and her husband, Kevin, collaborated on a children’s book, “My Rainy Day Cat”. Kevin wrote the story and Kim designed and drew the exquisitely detailed illustrations.
Kevin is an ardent supporter of Kim’s work. When he isn’t busy surf-casting for the area’s plentiful Red Drum and Speckled Trout, he is using his craftmenship as a woodworker to custom frame her popular prints.
