"TANLINES is a reference to memories made in paradise. Each piece will be a moment captured." - Kim Sielbeck

Kim is an art director, illustrator, musician, and textile designer. She was born in Alaska, and moved all around the U.S. in a Coast Guard family. She's currently living in tropical Honolulu, Hawaii after eleven years in Brooklyn. 

When not creating colorful, bright art, Kim is traveling, playing surf guitar in her band Puppies, reading, hiking, or sailing around the islands.
