Kim Roberts, MA
Growing up in DC, and later as a student in Paris and London, Kim gravitated to art museums as if to a place of worship, or a source of nourishment.
While earning a Master’s degree in Psychology from Naropa University Kim developed an obsession with Ashtanga yoga and Buddhist meditation. After working for years as a psychotherapist, she then spent spent the better part of 15 years living in South and Southeast Asia leading retreats that offered contemplative practice, psychology and creative process as tools for personal growth.
She is the author of two books: Ashtanga Yoga for Beginner’s Mind and Toward a Secret Sky: Creating Your Own Modern Pilgrimage.
While painting has always been part of her personal practice, she committed to making art when she discovered the encaustic wax medium in 2015.
Kim divides her time between Crestone and Denver, Colorado.
