About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    Living with beautiful objects that pay tribute to the natural world reminds us to reconnect with nature and slow down a bit. Taking my love of nature and animals and turning that into a piece of wood burned artwork for others to enjoy is my therapy and my work is created for others to enjoy. Capturing the beauty of nature is everything to me. Being able to take a piece of wood that has been cut down or thrown out to the trash and show the beauty of the wood grain in a brand new piece of hand carved art is also a passion of mine. I believe that getting outside is good for the soul and through my artwork, I try to bring the outside in.
  • Resume

    My name is Kimberly Gable, a self-taught artist, and I work directly with natural wood pieces found from fallen or cut trees, damaged limbs, fence posts or anything else wooden that has become someone else’s trash and turn it in to a beautiful piece of art showcasing the beauty of the wood once again as it should be shown.
    This has been a family tradition and has been passed down three generations now. My work has been showcased in Terra Studios Art Studio in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Critical Mass 6 in Shreveport, Louisiana, as well as various other art and craft fairs throughout Arkansas and Louisiana. A few of my favorites would be the Texas Avenue Maker’s Fair and even an appearance at the Downtown Artwalk in Shreveport, Louisiana. My work has also been featured in Pyrography Magazine.
    As well as woodworking, I also enjoy spending my time painting with acrylics, drawing with graphite pencils, and photographing nature.
    I am a local to Shreveport, Louisiana where I live and work. Although I have traveled around South Louisiana, Tennessee and Arkansas throughout the past 7 years, I am happy to be back home where I belong and sharing my love for art with everyone I come in contact with.
