With over 10 years experience in the interior design industry, founder and owner, Kim Edmonds, has the vision and expertise to connect her clients with art that suits their space. Starting out as an assistant to the owner of House Dressing Interior Design, Kim gained her footing in the industry. This launched her into the office of Katherine Newman Design, one of the most influential and accomplished interior design firms in the country. It is here where she learned the importance art plays in a space and how this connection can create a stimulated response to one’s surroundings. After eight years of working in this inspiring office she decided to switch gears and take on the role of Director of Purchasing and Logistics at Avenue Road, Toronto’s pre-eminent showroom for classic and contemporary furniture designs. However, Kim soon realized that she missed being involved in the creation of beautiful spaces, and Art Connect was born. Kim wanted to create an approachable art advisory business to help clients find pieces that suit their surroundings, work within their budget, and connect with the buyer.
Kim holds a B.A. degree in History and Political Science from the University of Toronto, as well as a diploma in Interior Design from the International Academy of Design and Technology.
