Naturalist, Photographer, Artist

"My art and photography reflect my passion for exploring nature – starting right outside my own front door."


About me:  

After retiring from a career in information technology for the financial industry, I have pursued my interests in nature, photography, and art. I have taken classes in entomology, zoology, birding, and botanical illustration. I am a certified naturalist through The Los Angeles Coastal California Master Naturalist Program. I participate in environmental education and in citizen science activities including local butterfly surveys, bird counts, and biodiversity hunts and studies. Additionally, I am a member of several Audubon Society chapters, and am the past secretary of the Lorquin Entomological Society.

I have presented to several local organizations on Californa Wildlife, Birds, Insects, Nature Journaling, and Documenting Nature. Video recording of Nature Journaling Talk:


I am a regular contributor on iNaturalist.


About my work:  The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Greenly Art Space, Gallery at El Dorado Nature Center, and the Liberty Gallery and Event Space in Long Beach, CA  have displayed my work.

My photographs have been published in "Wild L.A.: Explore the Amazing Nature In and Around Los Angeles",  "Insects of the L.A. Basin" By Charles L. Hogue (Third edition; Revised and edited by James N. Hogue) and in "Good Garden Bugs: Everything You Need to Know about Beneficial Predatory Insects" by Mary M. Gardiner.

Additionally my photos have been used in print by Joshua Tree National Park, in a paper for the National Congress of Mexico, a Guide to Stink Bugs by Virginia IPM, and the Museum of Natural History LA member magazine.

El Camino College, El Dorado Nature Center, Friends of Colorado Lagoon, the Aquarium of the Pacific, Fullerton Arboretum, Madrona Marsh, El Dorado Audubon, Sea and Sage Audubon, PV/South Bay Audubon, and Irvine Ranch Conservancy have used my photographs for educational purposes.

About my inspiration: I replaced my front lawn with a Southern California friendly garden. With three kinds of lavender, Santa Barbara daisies, kangaroo paws, sage, a variety of color to bloom in every season, my new garden created a wildlife habitat providing food, water, and shelter to many insects and birds.

I started photographing all these delightful visitors. I was in awe of the diversity that started to appear. Kim's Sight is my view of the world.  I hope to share my passion and inspire others to find theirs.  I hope you enjoy it!
