Kim Rice earned her BFA in Sculpture and her MFA in Printmaking at the University of Oklahoma. Fluctuating between 2D and 3D forms, Rice weaves from the detritus of daily life. Her love of ordinary materials goes back to her childhood memories of drawing on junk mail and brown paper bags. Her influences are contemporary artists exploring race, the pile of books by her bed and her two children.

Her work has been exhibited across the Midwest and South as well as in Valencia Spain. Her work on Whiteness was featured in the 19th Annual No Dead Artist exhibit at the Jonathan Ferrera Gallery in New Orleans and reviewed in Art Focus Oklahoma. She has received numerous awards including the Norman Arts Council Art Fellowship and Honorarium, The McNeese Grant for Socially Engaged Practice and the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition Professional Artist Grant.

Kim Rice currently resides in Norman, Oklahoma with her family.
