Kim Renee´ Blodgett was raised in the outskirts of a small town in the mountains of Vermont. Remote and isolated, she spent nearly all her time with her Abenaki grandmother. When Kim turned eighteen, she began to travel profusely within the United States. To date, she has moved over fifty times. 


Between her travels, she attended Boston University, received a BFA in painting with a minor in moral and political philosophy, attended Brandeis University for a Post-Baccalaureate in painting and printmaking, and finally received her MFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design.

The overarching theme of her work examines identity and the struggles one feels to operate in society. Her recent body of work addresses this theme more personally, where she grapples with her indigenous identity through a shift in materials and practice. This shift closely examines the ideologies of her academic education in an attempt to reconcile them with the values from her upbringing. ​
