Kim Casebeer spent her childhood exploring outdoors on her family farm and has a lengthy connection to the landscape. She travels across the United States to paint en plein air, gathering accurate color studies to bring back to her studio. Kim believes the simplicity of the landscape near her home in Manhattan, Kansas has helped her focus on strong design in a composition. Though Kim travels to paint many types of landscape, she always comes back to her first love - the big skies and rolling hills of Kansas.

She is a Master Signature Member of the American Women Artists, and a Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America and the Pastel Society of America.
