Kim McCarthy

Kim McCarthy aka SOULE of "Urban Soule"

Growing up in the sticks, and later living in the city, Kim McCarthy, aka SOULE of “Urban Soule”,┬ádeveloped a taste for urban street art such as wheat pasted posters and flier’s, stickers, stencils, murals and spray painted graffiti. Meeting new friends and seeing many bands, the “underground” and “outsider” art became part of her life. Having her first solo art show at the age of sixteen gave a new meaning to being an artist, selling almost all her paintings, she realized the potential in becoming a professional artist. Using mainly spray paint, stencils and ink as mediums she would create images on almost any printable surface she could find. Later, learning how to silkscreen her stencils she started making and selling clothing online and at street fairs.

She has had some great creative forces working with her. She has had numerous solo and group exhibits throughout Washington, Oregon, California, New York, Texas, Canada and the UK. Using the same mediums, having a short attention span, plenty of ideas and learning new techniques, she has created many products such as clothing, housewares, paintings, prints, sculptures and toys.She is featured in the following books:
