Irmo Featured Artist – Kimberly Case

Kimberly Case is a visual artist focusing on fine art portrait photography.

In 2018, her portrait creation Girl with Sword won Best of Show in the Professional Fine Art category of the SC State Fair, notably being the first and only photograph to ever take that prize in the 150+ year history of the fair.

In 2019, The Laborer won the SC State Fair Blue Ribbon for Professional Photography, while Lady with Wheat won a merit award for photography.

In 2020, her series In the Time of COVID was selected for display at The Koger Center for the Arts, the winner of their “1593 Project” call for art exhibited at the Koger Center April 5-August 13, 2021. In 2021, Airborne won the first-ever SC State Fair Blue Ribbon for Professional Digital Photography. Her art piece In the Time of COVID was selected to be a part of ArtFields 2022 in Lake City, SC. Her image Pearls was selected to hang in PhotoSC’s group exhibition: Something Blue April 2022. Kimberly’s artwork has won numerous other national awards and has been published internationally; her art pieces are in private collections across the southeast.

Incorporating sometimes fantastical themes, wardrobe and props, her photographs are often mistaken at first for oil paintings, due to their tones and aura. Hallmarks of her work are richness and whimsy.

“It is my joy to create reflections that allow the subjects to see themselves in a familiar, yet new, light. I seek to transport the viewer to a different place and time that is still somehow well-known. In my art, I portray themes of quiet strength. My images have a peaceful calmness and dignity to them.”

Kimberly is the lead photographer and co-owner at Studio 3P, LLC in Irmo, SC. Contact her there to discuss commissions for artwork and bespoke portrait sessions.
