Kim’s Cottage Art Review + Giveaway

Make Your Walls Beautiful With

Kims Cottage Art

Hours pass like minutes when Im painting

I have a natural love for houses with character, mainly because my mom has always loved them. Growing up, she was always putting together those puzzles with quaint little old-fashioned neighborhoods. There were horses pulling carriages, children playing outside happily, and couples sitting on the porch. The type of setting you really wish you could live in!

Thats why Im drawn to the beautiful cottage art found at Kims Cottage Art. I really want to be sucked into her paintings like on Mary Poppins and somehow find myself a part of that beautiful world! Wouldnt it be lovely to sit at one of these cottage porches and enjoy the scenery? 🙂

Especially a cottage at the ocean like these:

She has also created similar cottage paintings showing the beauty of the cottages during every season and holiday, too. Browse her cottage prints to find the perfect set for your wall!

Getting to know Kim, the artist behind these beautiful paintings:

Tell us a little bit about you and your family!
My name is Kim Leo. I live with my husband Andy and our dog Teddy. We think he is part terrier and part clown. He makes us laugh everyday.
How did you get started painting and selling your prints?

I have been drawing and painting ever since I was a little girl. I was aware of color and how different colors made me feel at a very early age. I truly enjoy painting. I strive to paint happy scenes that celebrate simple pleasures of everyday life. Offering prints of my original work allows me to share my art with many more people. I think prints are a fun, affordable way the collect and enjoy art.
Besides art, what else do you love to do? What are your hobbies?

I love to find flea market and yard sale treasures.
What would you like to share with my readers about your store and artwork?

I hope that my artwork brings a smile to your face. I couldnt imagine doing anything else. I am having the time of my life!

My Thoughts

I received two lovely 8 x 10 prints from Kims Cottage Art to review. They arrived in a sturdy mailer in a clear acid-free protective sleeve in perfect condition and completely ready to frame!

Framing: I decided to put both prints in one 8.5 x 11 frame and switch them out seasonally. The winter one for winter and the summer one for summer. I love this idea! Heres how it looks on my wall:

Kim recommends that you frame these prints using an 11 x 14 frame and custom matte; however, I decided to use an 8.5 x 11 frame and just let the white border show. I really love the result!

Print Quality: As stated in the listings, both prints are printed on 80-lb acid-free archival paper. The ink is moisture, scratch, and fade-resistant, and Kim signs, titles, and dates each print.
