Kimberly D. Winkle

"I have intentionally simplified the forms of my furniture so that it is the designs themselves that are the central focus."

Winkle is a maker who creates furniture and objects using wood and paint; her work is an exploration of form, color, and surface pattern. She works with the basic arrangement of dot and line, viewing the combination of these elementary marks as an exciting and somewhat quirky dialogue of characters.

Winkle holds a BFA in ceramics from the University of Oklahoma and an MFA in furniture design from San Diego State University. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including SOFA Chicago, Wanted Design NYC, and the Architectural Digest Home Show. Her award-winning work has been included in a number of publications.
