Crookedfinger Art is an expression of my person style and creative impulses. – Kim Cadenhead
Kim Cadenhead is the founder of Crookedfinger Art. Kim has a unique quirk, two crooked pinky fingers, a result of a genetic glitch. Her little quirk resulted in the inspiration for her company name, it is an ode to her unique characteristic which she embraces and has allowed her to flourish as an artist with her original artistic style. Kim is passionate about various medias for art projects. Her portfolio includes: paintings on canvas, mixed media, handcrafted sustainable products and graphic t-shirt designs. Kim recently took part in an artist workshop in North Carolina. The workshop gave Kim an opportunity to grow as an artist and finesse her painting skills. Her experience there lead to her latest creative endeavor a series of floral paintings on both canvas and repurposed wooden trays— both wonderful works of art for home decor.
Kim is an artist who is inspired by the environment around her and incorporates the very essence of her surroundings into her paintings, handmade items and mixed media projects. In my humble option, I view Kim’s most recent floral collection as having a touch of influence from impressionist paintings incorporated with her own modern signature style, blending beautifully together. Her floral paintings from her 2016 collection are my personal favorites. Kim sells both original canvas artwork and canvas prints.
Sustainable Fashion and Eco Art
Since moving from Toronto, Canada to the Cayman Islands, Kim has visited local thrift shops to gather materials for her latest sustainable art projects. It is her aspiration to repurpose materials found locally and transform them in sustainable handcrafted products including: beach tote bags, hand tote bags, messenger bags rugs, pot holders, coasters and even mixed media art pieces.
It is rather astounding when you take a moment to realize the magnitude of materials available that has the potential to be repurposed and used in a sustainable way. All of her eco-friendly items are handmade. Kim’s sustainable art pieces have all been made from magazines that would have otherwise ended up in the landfill. Kim is an artist with an eco-conscious mindset. Her sustainable fashion and home products prove that recycled and repurposed materials can be transformed into chic sustainable products.
