About

Hi, I'm Kim.

I'm an Australian artist, scientist, educator and aspiring naturalist.

I hope that my adventures and nature journaling can inspire everyone to go outdoors, explore and learn more about the world around them. There is so much to benefit from being in the natural environment and my hope is that by connecting more with nature we will make a difference towards preserving our planet and life on it in addition to our own wellbeing.

Join me as I use curiosity, a sketchbook and watercolours to discover what there is to see out there!
