Who is Kimberly Ellis?

Kimberly Ellis is an author, artist, Illustrator, mother, homeschooler, and art teacher. In high school, I became fascinated with children’s book illustration after seeing an exhibit by Charles Santore.

I am a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design. I live in Virginia with my husband and seven children. 

My paint party business, Paint Me Purple Studios, has been helping others create beautiful art since 2014.

My first children’s book, “Butterflies for Rory” was published in 2019.

Awarded Gold as Best Local Author 2021 by Suffolk News-Herald.

Butterflies for Rory

This book can help bring comfort and hope to a child in the midst of the loss of a sibling or loved one. When someone is touched by the devastation of death, their only true comfort is in the Savior Himself – the one who overcame death and points us to His own resurrection.
