The Artist Says:

If you can’t see the soul - that of myself and my muse - in my compositions, then I’ve failed. I want you to see the world through my eyes, to process light and color as I do. To reach into the planes of my paintings with your heart and to walk away knowing that we share compassion and a joy for life.


Kimberly Santini  is formally educated as a painter, with a BFA in Painting and a BA in Art History, but worked a traditional career path for over a decade. She set up a home studio in 2001 and began with commissioned portraiture. In 2006 she committed to daily painting, a creative practice she continues today. Santini brings her unique voice to the easel with an unparalleled sense of color and spontaneity. She was honored as the official artist of the 2015 Kentucky Derby, has worked with the AKC on poster artwork, designed a wine label, and hung solo shows across the country.  A firm believer in community involvement, Santini is also in leadership roles with the Romeo Guild of Art and The Detroit Society of Women Painters & Sculptors.
Since the onset of Covid, Santini has been channeling her spirit guides as painting subjects, working in a series she's titled "The Talisman." She weaves synchronicities in her life with the animals she dreams of and encounters in other ways. The pieces are layered with expressive brushwork, imaginative color, and delightful collisions of her choosing (like a rabbit as a snowglobe or foxes brimming with flowers). They reference both internal and external landscapes in vistas that have roots in an ethereal world. 
She maintains a well of online resources, including an active social media presence of in-process and behind the scene details (Facebook and Instagram). Santini continues to blog multiple times weekly, and her entire body of work including over a decade of daily paintings is archived at www.PaintingaDogaDay.com. Originals are available via gallery representation or directly through the artist. Prints, reproductions and textiles can be ordered and shipped directly via online vendors. She has written and self published a number of books as well. Santini mentors and teaches style discovery online, and live streamed free art journaling lessons [...]
