Kim Bova creates photographs of the natural world including: flowers, landscapes, still-life, and places traveled. She prints on various surfaces, paper, metal, acrylic and wood and now also offers hand printed ‘one of a kind’ gicleé prints transfers from a transparent film to surfaces such as art paper, wood, metal or acrylic and adds mica or acrylic paint to the mix making each print unique.
Growing up in an artistic family shaped Kim’s path in life. Photography captured her attention since her father was an avid photographer and the simple and elegant beauty the work of Elliot Porter was inspirational to her. She learned by her father’s side how to use a camera, which became an integral part of her life. Even though she was trained as a classical pianist earning a Masters from Eastman School of Music she always had a camera nearby.
When starting a family upon returning to CT in the 1990’s, she enrolled at in the Photography program at UCONN’s Fine Art School. Her kids were her subjects at first and she enjoyed photographing life around her. Once she realized that she had been training for this her whole life, she started her own business of Wedding and Portrait Photography and never looked back. Now, as she retires from her Wedding and Portrait business she has time to concentrate on her own personal vision as an art photographer.
