Nibblefest Artist Interview: Kathy Clemente (KMC)

Nibblefest Artist Interview: Kathy Clemente (KMC)

Art by Kathy Clemente

How long have you been creating art (and/or) selling it online? 

I’ve always enjoyed drawing or painting and have been selling on eBay since 2004 and on Etsy since since 2010. In April of 2011 I had my art shown in the Nutley Library.

How did you first hear about Nibblefest and when did you first start Nibblefesting?

I heard about NFAC on eBay discussion boards and it looked interesting, so I ask to join and was happy they let me. Thanks Vicky Knowles!

What do you enjoy about Nibblefest? 

Nibblefest is fun because it sparks up my imagination to do things I wouldn’t normally do.

Who are your favourite artistic influences?

My mom was a helpful critic for me, I could tell just by looking at her face if she thought something wasn’t quite right. Thanks Mom!

Tell us something interesting about you that many people online don't already know.

I used to do charcoal portraits in my high school days but when I started selling on eBay I ended up gravitating to animals. Occasionally I will do a human with my critters. I am not good at drawing flowers, so I try them once in a while to see if I’ve improved! Unfortunately, not yet. I was a framer at Michaels for a couple years and learned a lot and worked with a great team.

I make a drawing and come up with the story when it’s ready to list.

My tag line is “Animal Art, both serious and silly”.

I will do commissions. My email is

What would be your Nibblefest dream theme?

I’d rather be surprised rather than pick a theme because I’d probably pick something I was familiar with and I prefer to really put my brain to work. :) It even sparks my imagination for future work.

Where can people find your work?

If you google my name or kmcoriginals all my links will come up.
