Ink-Dwell’s mission is to inspire people to love, appreciate and protect the Earth, one work of art at a time.
A play on words, Ink-Dwell studio makes art that is “inked well”, and specializes in creating environmental campaigns, exhibitions, science illustrations, and fine art. Merging classical techniques of science illustration with modern simplicity, we collaborate with businesses, non-profits, scientists, designers and branding experts to deliver iconic images that carry a powerful message of education and conservation.
Jane Kim is an artist, science illustrator and Founder of Ink-Dwell. She began her art career very early in life by obsessively painting flowers and bears on the walls of her bedroom. Later, she received more formal training at the Rhode Island School of Design (BFA in Printmaking, Class of ’03), and then Cal State Monterey Bay, where she received a Certificate in Science Illustration (Class of ’10). She loves to be outdoors and go on adventures and brings the joy she gets from nature back to her studio. She still enjoys painting flowers and bears, though nowadays she doesn’t get in trouble for painting on the walls.
“Our planet is home to incredible and wondrous life,” says Kim. “I feel most excited, both visually and intellectually in nature. Combining that with my passion for art leaves me with unrefined excitement. Sharing even a fraction of that with the rest of the world is the best gift that I know how to give.”
