Kim Cypert is an emerging visual artist from south Texas. She earned a bachelor's in Studio Art with an emphasis in Painting from the Texas Tech School of Art in 2008. Concentrating on watercolor and gouache, she spent her graduating summer working at the School of Art Center International in Florence, Italy. Although always exhibiting an aptitude for draughtsmanship, it became clear that technical painting was overlooked by a strong conceptual focus as part of her undergraduate curriculum. It wasn't until a year after graduation that she felt the need to seek individual painting instruction. She is currently living and working in Houston, Texas.
