Kim started her art career as a child finding rocks in the washes in Arizona and painting figures, which her family still keeps today. She started sculpting her Hopi maidens over twenty years ago and still has yet to scratch the surface of her cultural history. ''The Hopi Tribe of Northern Arizona, is thousands of years old. I have a lifetime to fully explain my people and their history. I know many of my collectors now understand more about the women and their powerful place in Hopi history.'' She originally worked in the traditional scrape-and-smooth method, which Hopi potters have used for thousands of years. Kim's degree from Northern Arizona University in Fine Arts, sculpture and bronze casting has become to be a personal satisfaction for her art career. Kim has been casting bronze for over 21 years and continues to enamor her collectors with her latest designs. Kim is one of the first Hopis to work in bronze as an Art Medium and one of the first American Indian Women to work in bronze, which is historically a male dominated field of art.
