Biography

Kyle Sims, b. 1980, United States


Sims’s training with the arts began very early, but with no formal regimen in place.  His talent and interest was recognized early by his parents and they nurtured and encouraged this passion.  At 13, he was inspired by the work of Carl Brenders. At 16, he began taking workshops that enabled him to meet Daniel Smith, who has since become a good friend, and Paco Young, who nurtured his development and encouraged him to paint from life.  Painting in the field altered the way Sims sees, not only his subjects, but how it can help an artist to make a more pleasing painting.  As Sims' career matured his influences have also included Wilhelm Kuhnert, Carl Rungius, Joaquin Sorolla, Bob Kuhn, Richard Schmid, and Clyde Aspevig.


Sims paints to visually re-enact the experiences he has had in the wild with his animals. His active research and continued practice, coupled with his inherent, natural talent, have helped Sims grow into one of the most sought after wildlife artists in the country. Kyle Sims enjoys making new discoveries with oil paint and observing wildlife firsthand.
