Kimberly-Ann Debling was born in Mississippi, USA and has lived in the UK for the majority of her life. After university she was in the Royal Air Force for 11 years as an Air Traffic Control Officer, before retiring to run her own design business. Her work involved designing websites, applications, branding, online courses, packaging and more. She produced her first book, an adult colouring book in 2016 and her second in 2017 was a SketchUp workbook to go along with one of her online courses. Unfortunately, Kim was diagnosed with Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma while pregnant with her beautiful little daughter Rose. Understanding she had an excellent prognosis at an early Stage 1 - controllable with just creams and light treatment she fell pregnant again. This time the news was bad: Stage 4 - the cancer had spread and the prognosis was not good. She had chemotherapy while pregnant and gave birth to a healthy, though slightly early little son called Harvey. During her time spent feeling sorry for herself in bed Kim took up art to focus on something she could improve on. Inspired by her favourite youTube artists she also restarted her youTube videos, candidly explaining her life with cancer and her art journey. Kim is tentatively restarting some small amounts of work though she is still having intense treatments and lots of hospital stays. You can follow her on her blog, on her youTube channel and on various social media sites. You can also become a patron of her art and youtube videos on Patreon.
