The sale will be online only and will begin Monday October 4 at noon.
Kim Deakins grew up in the beautiful cool mountains of north eastern Tennessee and attended East Tennessee State University. In 2007, Kim moved to Athens Georgia in the middle of summer to attend the University of Georgia, Lamar Dodd School of Art. She was awarded a full ride and assistantship to attend UGA. After acclimating to the heat and humidity she quickly grew to love all of the wonderful things Athens Georgia had to offer. She cultivated long lasting relationships with classmates and blossomed in the community.
Kim abandoned her background in naturalistic portrait painting to explore and experiment with new mediums, styles and content. She enjoyed creating colorful and fantastic compositions filled with bizarre creatures and worlds.
During her second year of graduate school she began a tattoo apprenticeship at a local tattoo studio.
In 2016 she opened a private studio in Athens and named it Pink Goblin Tattoo, a playful nod to her love of sci-fi/ fantasy and feminine energy. She now works with two full-time artists, one apprentice and a shop manager.
All proceeds go to the Lyndon House Arts Foundation who raise funds to support the growth and reach of programs at the Lyndon House Arts Center.
These programs would not exist if it were not for the funding through the Foundation. The Annual Juried show is one of the most popular annual shows and continues to grow in the number of artists submitting work each year. The juror is flown in from one of the leading art museums in the U.S.
For these programs we supplement the Center’s budget to make the program more extensive, and sometimes even possible. The support could be as simple as helping to pay for an instructor/assistant, or as extensive as buying a kiln or computer with animation software.
