MadArt is owned and operated by MidMichigan artist, Kimberly Conklin. 


Kimberly has always loved art and music. Her childhood memories are filled with piano lessons and recitals, and painting pottery at her mother's ceramics store. As an adult, she studied fine art under Carol Basso for over 20 years. She often combines her love of music with her love of art in brightly colored paintings of instruments. 

Kimberly began teaching fine art in 2012. She teaches classes in oil, acrylic, and watercolor painting as well as beginner drawing and soft pastels. She also offers on location paint parties. However, if you need a location, she can provide that as well! 

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”
