Kim Ragsdale's work is a expression of her experiences living and working in the country. She conceptualizes an era of working cowboys and cowgirls and the animals and action that surround them. Her subjects are captured in their element, performing daily tasks. All her ultra-realistic black and white drawings are done using high quality graphite with 19 differentiated degrees from especially soft to extra hard. She says, "I've learned to draw what I see, not what I know is there."
Kim's fine art and commission work is in private collections throughout the West, including Arizona, Nevada, Montana, Washington and her home state of Oregon.
