As luck would have it, we met Kimberley at a wedding where she was seated next to Jonathan, and once we found out that she had both creative and personal training chops, we had her come by the ROLLOUT studio every Friday for intense Pilates and boxing sessions. As a design firm who have always supported the creative and community spirit, we appreciated Kimberley's unique approach to fitness, as did our abs, eventually.

What is one word that describes your artist style? Empowering
How did you get started working with ROLLOUT? I was seated at a table with Jonathan at a wedding reception in which Anita was a bridesmaid. I thought they were amazing and couldn’t wait to work with them. The rest is history!
What resources do you use for creating your work? Books, Human Anatomy, My Worst Nightmares and My Best Dreams
Can you share any of your secret tips? I use a lot of abstract strategy. My curiosity about everything and my drive to understand “Why”, are my greatest creative powers. I love living in that intersection between Art and Science. That’s where the magic is.
Never look back!
What did your parents want you to be instead of an artist? I was one of the lucky ones. My parents encouraged me to follow my passion: “if you love what you do, your life will have purpose and you will be happy and healthy”
Is there a piece of art you wished you had created, and why?: "The Holy Bible", author unknown. It's every genre rolled into one and continues to inspire discussion and debate thousands of years after its conception.
What gets you excited about tomorrow? My children. My work. The belief that I can and will do everything I have dreamed of.
How would you refer to the current artistic style and mindset you live in today? I live as and believe myself to be an Alchemist.
Anything else you’d like to add? Make it happen!
