Kim Korol is a multidisciplinary artist who works primarily in ceramics and drawing. She explores the relationships between the effects of time, the forces of nature, and the influences of humans.

After attaining her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2019 from the Alberta University of the Arts, Kim moved to Mayne Island and launched Kim Korol Studio, and together with a fellow potter created Mayne Island Clay Works. At the Clay Works gallery and studio, Kim creates large vessels, custom architectural tile, and public art.

Kim’s work is gaining critical recognition. The Devil’s Rope #9 received honourable mention in the 2021 Arts on the Islands – Southern Gulf Islands Regional Art Exhibition. Also in 2021, she received a Canada Council for the Arts grant in collaboration with Kristine Webber, to complete a 6-foot diameter tile mural titled Porosity, which was installed in the Mayne Island Japanese Memorial Gardens.
