Kimmie Gehling

Painter & Illustrator

Hi there! My name is Kimmie Gehling and I am a North Carolina-based artist working on all things nature. I am the founder of RunRunRabbitStudio on Etsy and while I paint landscapes and seascapes I have been better known for my candy-colored animal portraits. I like to try a bit of everything but work mostly with watercolor, acrylic and oil paint.
