About Kim SignoretPaar

Kim uses her camera to create images that tell stories from fleeting moments or from structures around us.  She won her first competition with a BW photo of a boy in a tree when she was thirteen. With a degree in journalism from the University of Iowa, she went west in 1980. Her career in California and Mexico focused on public relations, publishing and fundraising. In 2009, Kim returned to creating art with her camera and in the summer of 2014, she won Best of Show at the International Exhibition of Photography at the San Diego County Fair.  In addition to showing her photography in various venues, Kim teaches iPhoneography at the UCSD Retirement Center and OASIS San Diego.
