Master Class Trainer
Kim Beaton has been a sculptor for well over twenty years. Her most recent accomplishments include several years working on the three Hobbit movies at the prestigious Weta Workshop in New Zealand. She continues to this day to work in Film, Television and Public Art. Kim is a talented artist with excellence in anatomy, human figure and large-scale projects.
Kim's greatest passion is for large outdoor and classical sculpture. By far, themes involving children's literature and mythology are the most compelling. These images have a special power on their own. By making them real, Kim is tapping into something deeper; the underlying power of storytelling that we all share.
She is also THE most skilled individual working with Pal Tiya Premium at this time as it was originally developed for her to work on her own projects. Artist, teacher, professional and mother of dragons; it is Kim's long-held dream to bring Pal Tiya Premium to the masses. An amazing teacher, she has the constant enthusiasm of a Meerkat in a coffee shop!
Her own aesthetic creed, “First, it must be beautiful”. Afterwards it can also be morally uplifting, sexy, silly, threatening, political, intellectually stimulating, and any number of other things. But if something is also beautiful, people will keep it around long enough for it to become appreciated.
Here's a little taste of Kim giving an upcoming demonstration of building a human figure with Pal Tiya Premium...
Sometimes videos on this platform can take time to come in so start playing and pause then resume!
