Kimberly WursterKimberly Wurster


Kimberly Wurster, a native of western Montana, relocated to the Oregon coast in 1995. Prior to this move Kimberly, with her husband Scott, developed wildlife refuges in Montana, turning unproductive ranch wetlands into prime habitat for waterfowl and trout. A classical cellist for over forty years, Kimberly shifted her artistic focus in 1995 to painting fine art.

With no formal training, she continuously draws on her experience with the wetlands and a lifelong love for the natural world. “My goal is to capture the spirit of my subject, to exemplify the beauty that so inspires me.” Kimberly creates her paintings primarily in pastel, watercolor or acrylic, sometimes incorporating ink and other forms of mixed media. She enjoys painting a variety of subjects including landscapes and seascapes but has a particular fondness for
birds and wildlife. Her work has earned numerous awards for excellence in domestic and international competition.
