Contemporary artist Kim McCarthy aka Urban Soule has been featured in many Design/Home Decor Magazines, Books and Television for her paintings. Her work can be found in residential, private and corporate collections throughout the United States and Abroad. Her work as a visual artist has taken her art on a number of extraordinary adventures around the world, from Art Basel to the BAM, the United Kingdom to Hollywood and back to Seattle where she currently resides with her family, a Bunny, two Dogs and two Peacocks. She is a member of numerous art and environmental groups that are dedicated to the preservation of Wildlife Conservation and Natural Habitats. Using mainly spray paint, stencils, ink and collage as mediums she creates images on almost any printable surface, preferably canvas or wood panels .She incorporates the old traditions of paper cutting with a newer urban approach to painting. She uses her own photography and turns the photos into multi layered paper stencils, over the years Flora and Fauna have became a personal favorite. She's constantly trying new techniques and mediums to fine tune her work.
