Kim Corpany grew up on the backs of her family's horses in Morgan, Utah. Her mother is an artist and art teacher, so Kim began drawing lessons early. Being a horse crazy girl from the start, Kim’s artwork has nearly always revolved around horses.
Kim earned an Associates Degree from Weber State University as well as a
Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Utah State University.
She continued her art education, studying landscape painting at the Jackson Hole Artist's Academy under the direction of Jim Wilcox.
Kim has also studied oil painting with Tom Browning at Scottsdale Artists School.
To continue to improve her horse paintings and drawing skills, Kim studied horse anatomy and sculpture from CA sculptor Mehl Lawson. This class launched Kim's career in bronze sculpture and sculpting bronze horses. She has also continued her learning by learning horse psychology, anatomy, and training from reining horse trainer Vaughn Knudsen.
Kim enjoys training and showing her own horses in NRHA reining competitions as well as AQHA and APHA horse shows.
Kim has worked in concert with sculptor and bronze foundry owner Stan Watts and his foundry Atlas Bronze Casting to create numerous bronze monuments and statues worldwide including a bronze statue of George Washington on his half-Arabian stallion, Blueskin which is located at Freedoms Foundation , Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.
Kim's Horse painting prints are available both as fine art and home decor items.
Kim Corpany's paintings and sculptures are so life like that they draw the viewer in,
waiting to see the bronze horse breathe, twitch an ear, and continue forward as it takes it's next stride.
