Berkeley Springs WV

Kim Potter

We met Kim about four years ago during a studio tour of Berkeley Springs artists. Marla really liked his coats and jackets. A couple of years later we asked him about having us produce a short about him for ArtVoiceWV. He politely declined, a combination of modesty and nervousness. This past Spring, we took up the studio tour again and met up with Kim. He blurted out that he thought he was ready for us to profile him.

Surprised and happy we set up time to visit his studio with our cameras. Though he was still nervous about the interview, we all had an enjoyable time. Learn more about Kim at http://www.kimpotter.com/
