Jane Kim’s enthralling avian artworks combine the precision of scientific illustration with a vivid, animating quality drawn from her training in the visual arts. Kim conducts extensive research, basing her paintings on a combination of direct observation, specimen study and photo and video viewing.

She received formal training in printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design and earned a master’s certificate in science illustration from California State University Monterey Bay. Kim has created large-scale public art across the country, including the epic, interactive Wall of Birds at The Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The expansive mural integrates the evolutionary history of birds with their biodiversity through life-sized depictions of the 243 modern bird families from around the world. Kim is also the creator of the Migrating Mural campaign, a series of public installations that highlight the wildlife found along migration corridors they share with people.
