San Diego, CA
Born in sunny San Diego, CA, Kim Kirch grew up with a passion for the great outdoors. From the mountains to the desert, lakes to the ocean, she has spent the better part of her life exploring them all and become the ultimate Southern California tour guide in the process. Kim’s art is heavily influenced by her surrounding environments and has spread throughout the action sports industry in the past few years from skate to wake graphics, original surfboard art, full size murals at action sports parks and more. Kim is more than just an artist, she’s also an incredible board-rider and the captain of many ships in the sea. Her #WillPaintToShred campaign has taken her around the globe in recent years trading original mural art with various action sports parks in exchange for the opportunity to shred and explore the local landscapes of the regions she travels. For Kim adventure is the ultimate payout, and her art inspires us action sports fans to get outdoors and shred.
