Kimberly Hoechst

My work is evolving, and I have begun embracing the practice of perceptual painting. With this approach, I seek to create a believable, atmospheric visual experience for the viewer through careful attention to unified color relationships that capture conditions of light and space. Form in my paintings emerges from these unified color foundations. Recently, I began working primarily from life because this approach is most conducive to capturing a sensory response to my subject matter. I work almost exclusively in oils because I love their vibrancy, malleability and durability.
I have been an artist for over fifteen years. I built the foundation for my oil painting skills through extensive study at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. In the years that followed, I continued to develop my painting skills through self-directed initiatives and periodic participation in workshops and classes taught by master artists. In 2022, I reconnected with one of my first and best teachers, Peter Van Dyck, a Philadelphia-based artist and teacher at PAFA who was educated at The Florence Academy of Art in Italy. I have been in private study with him since then, and he has greatly influenced my approach to painting.
Being a professional artist is my second career. Prior to that, I had an extensive career in Marketing and Branding. I greatly enjoyed that line of work, but I am truly passionate about being a painter.
