As “America’s Best Known Living Folk Artist,” Warren Kimble draws on more than 50 years of experience as a fine artist, educator, and antiques collector to create a casual but sophisticated style of American Folk Art.
His classic folk art features the animals, rural landscapes and buildings of Vermont. Warren Kimble’s paintings are universally appealing. They evoke a simpler and less complicated era. Warren Kimble’s paintings are collected worldwide and have been the subject of one-person shows in galleries in New York and Boston, as well as at Syracuse University and a three-year exhibition at Shelburne Museum in Vermont.
As Warren himself says, his style is “reminiscent of something that surrounds a person every day. It is simplistic, yet abstract.”
Warren and Lorraine, his wife and business partner, live and work in the western Vermont town of Brandon, where they have been deeply involved in civic life and philanthropy for over forty years. They continue to be a strong force in community development, working together with other artists and community leaders to begin an artist’s guild, renovate the historic town hall, and rehabilitate a now thriving downtown.
