Artist StatementMy desire is to inspire others with art
Born in Baltimore Maryland, Kim Bradley currently lives and work in Baltimore Maryland. As a child Kim had a love for making and drawing art. Anything created you can do with your hands was Kim’s favorite passtime. As a kid of four sibblings drawing, singing, music and sewing was her solitude amongst all the chaos in her life growing up.
Although, Kim had a natural talent for art and sewing she never took it serious as a career because she was often told by her teachers and family members there was on money in art. Kim decided to pursue a career in Civil Engineering Drafting to kill two birds with one stone, drawing and money, she thought she found the answer for her love of drawing and making money but to her surprise she grew to hate drafting because of the politics involved in getting promoted in government workplace. After 18 years of drafting, Kim decided to pursue a career in selling her art as a business. It was the best decision she made for herself in a long time.
In 2005, Change Creations was born, a greetings cards, and t-shirts business. Kim decided to go back to college and pursue a degree in business with a minor in art and it changed the direction of her life. She knew this is what she was meant to do own her own business.
