Originally trained as a Set Designer, Kimberlee work for many years in theatre and the film industry before focusing on her fine art practice.  From small sculptures to large scale video projection machines she uses light, water, and movement to reflect people. They mark intersections with technology and the everyday, connections between the virtual and physical; connections and pathways, electricity and water colliding in the same conduit, expressing the complexity of beauty, anxiety, and love.

Kimberlee grew up in San Antonio,Texas. In Northern California, she has shown her work at the Zero 1 Bienniale, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Mission 17, and Sonoma State University, The Invisible Venue, and The Lab. In Europe, her work has been shown at the Biennial of Mediterranean Young Artist in Saravejo, Bosnia, Porto 2000 Capital of Culture, Cultural Center Malaposta, Gallery ZDB, and 'Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin.  She earned her MFA in Art from Mills College and holds an MA in Scenography from Central St. Martins College of Art & Design, London.
