With an obsession with mourning art, gender themes, Romanticism, Gothic Literature and late nineteenth century art, Kym Hepworth create art work that tells of loss and grief. She uses material that were traditionally associated with the house and women bit of course use it in a modern or post modern way to create dark, sentimental fetish images.
She received her BFA in Painting from Moore College of Art and Design and her MFA in Painting from Savannah College of Art. She has been part of several solo and group show nationally and internationally. These include show at the China Art Exposition in Beijing, China, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Atlanta, GA and The Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, IL. She won several awards and articles about her art have been published regularly since 1994.
