“I create my own sculpture, mosaic, ceramics, fused glass and mixed media art. My themes are often; Birds, Fish, Animals and Abstract. My mission is creating Art for Fun and Pleasure; Public Art, Kinetic Sculpture, Interactive Sculpture.”
In 2010 Kim built a large, kinetic, public art sculpture for the Port of San Diego named SEA LEVEL. The City of Coronado purchased SEA LEVEL and installed it in front of the new Coronado Boathouse and Clubroom.
