Kim Roberts

2021 Shakaat Artist-in-Residence

Kim Roberts resides in Marsh Lake, Yukon. She is of Cree/Métis decent with family ties to Northern Alberta.

Kim’s an emerging visual artist who works in the medium of Stained Glass & Mosaics. She was first introduced to stained glass through a glass workshop she participated in over ten years ago. It was that workshop that fueled a newfound passion. In recent years Kim has started to sell her artwork through local craft fairs, private sales and commissions. Kim enjoys using reclaimed/recycled materials such as reclaimed barn wood, old wooden window frames, snowshoes, and antique finds.

“Over the years I’ve amassed an oversized collection of glass things…Oil lanterns, depression glass, marbles, insulators, fishing floats, railroad lanterns, beach glass. Naturally I was drawn to stained glass. Its the light, it shines through a piece, and you see it’s true beauty. I love that about glass objects.”
