Your Instructor

Hi!  I’m Jordan Kim and if you choose to take a Found & Rewound class, I will be your instructor. My mission is to create art and experiences that inspire us to honor our connections to each other and the natural world. 

I have a BS in biology and two minors – one in chemistry and one in studio art.  I also have a masters degree in Environmental Management.  Needless to say, I love to learn.  I worked as an ecologist for over 15 years while I built my art business on the side.  

Art helps me reconnect to the rhythm of the natural world and stay grounded. I would love nothing more than to know that one of my classes or my art helped you feel more attuned to the abundance in your life too. My wish for you is a life filled with sweet simple moments, people you love and a connection to the natural world that supports us all. If guiding you through an experience where you get to reconnect to yourself and engage in some creativity can help make that wish come true – my work here is done.

  • "Thanks so much!  Our kids certainly had a blast at Nature Art Camp.  We really appreciated getting the daily photos and emails summarizing their activities. They are already asking if they can go back next year! 

    Thrilled parents!"

  • "(The retreat) was an absolutely lovely experience. You thought of everything. Right down to the little detail. I felt very welcome, comfortable, cared for. So much more than an art retreat. A healing through art retreat. I could listen to you talk for days!!"

  • "Your Play Date series is amazing! My daughter brings home beautiful projects, she's thrilled to go every week and has learned so much from you. It's been such a joy to watch her creativity and confidence soar during your classes."
