Bio: Born 1966, and native to the San Francisco Bay Area, Kim Lordier graduated from the University of San Francisco, with a BFA Illustration in 1989, and from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. After college, Lordier flew for a major air carrier, which gave her the advantage of being able to experience many domestic and foreign locations, all the while keeping up with her painting.

She is currently a Signature member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters, the Pastel Society of America, a Distinguished Pastelist in the Pastel Society of the West Coast, and Artist Member of the California Art Club.
