  • Kym Fulmer

    Living and working in East Hampton for nearly a decade, Kym Fulmer is an artist whose work is inspired by our coastal environment.  Kym mainly employs methods of printmaking.  She enjoys the quality of line, the richness of the inks, and the element of surprise involved in printmaking that often brings her unplanned results.  The fluid line of a screen print becomes a rolling wave in a seascape.  The rough edge of a woodcut becomes a crab shell. 

    Originally from San Diego, Kym spent some time in NYC before discovering the east end of Long Island.  She holds a BA in Visual Art from UC San Diego and an MFA from Long Island University.  Kym stays connected to the community through teaching. She has taught printmaking and other art mediums at the Golden Eagle, Springs School, and Applied Arts of Amagansett.  She has exhibited her work locally and abroad.
