Kim Baise
Los Angeles

My name is Kim Baise. I’m a Los Angeles based artist/designer with a Master’s in printmaking and sculpture from NYU. Most of my pieces are hanging sculptures made from discarded scraps of our existence: broken twigs and other found materials. From these components I create organic harmony, ethereal and delicate mobiles that exude beauty and love. All of my works have a raw, handmade energy to tickle both the nature child and the high art design chords. I hope that my art will remind the world to look up and smile.

I create: Twig mobiles
I use: Twigs, hemp twine, glue and paint
Based in: Los Angeles, CA
Favorite local hangout: Huntington Botanical Gardens
Design should be: Organic harmony
