Kim Fox was born in New Wilmington, PA and raised in Stahlstown, PA, a rural area east of Pittsburgh. She currently resides in Mt. Lebanon, PA, a “streetcar suburb” of Pittsburgh. She earned her BFA in Printmaking from the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC, 1994. Her childhood in rural Western Pennsylvania informs her aesthetic, subject matter and choice of materials. She has been making art and showing her work for sixteen years - beginning with more traditional painting and collage when she lived in Florida. After moving back to Pennsylvania and reclaiming her roots, she started to explore the regional arts and crafts with a more rural bent. Six years ago, she began working with vintage tins and salvaged wood and patchworking the tin in a way that felt like quilting. Currently, she is researching traditional quilting and the stories behind the patterns. Her tin quilts have been shown in galleries in Pittsburgh, Providence, RI, and Brooklyn, NY. In addition to making her tin quilts, Fox is an itinerant art teacher in regional schools and also is a designer and illustrator. When she’s not making or teaching, she’s with her husband and son, their three dogs, a cat, five chickens, and a milk snake. Probably around a fire.
