Biography

Kimberly Bartenhagen is a whimsical artist living in the lakes region of New Hampshire. Her form might be categorized as “assemblage art” and her work is the product of a vision to reclaim and recycle masculine, industrial materials with a touch of feminine flair. Kimberly likes to soften the coldness of the salvaged pieces with organic elements from her New Hampshire environment. She achieves an edginess with the use of unexpected and once forgotten antique objects.

Alice probably would have said, “Curiouser and curiouser.”
