American artist KiP Walker
Bio

Growing up in the North Carolina Piedmont and Espanola Valley of New Mexico, attending Virginia Tech, Blue Ridge Mountains, living in the Salt Lake City Valley, as well as wonderful travels, Walker has become aware that she has spent many of her happiest moments being in the mountains or near by. 

Pursuing her career in a medical profession, along the way she enjoyed local and university art instruction, especially sculpture, drawing, printmaking and photography. A life change led her to pursue another BS and then MFA at UW-Madison Wisconsin, with emphasis on photography. 

Walker has received several grants and many of awards, the most impactful: first prize, 3rd grade, New Mexico State Fair. Her work has been shown regionally, nationally and internationally in invitational and competitive exhibitions and galleries, including her own, KiP Gallery, on Canyon Road. She has been visiting artist at numerous institutions and art facilities and has taught at the college level. Walker’s work is in personal, museum and published collections.

Back in Santa Fe, the Spiritual connections she embraced among these mountains and many travels, guide her to create from the core with Spirit Song, as Spirit Being.
