Kim Vallo


Artist Profile

Kim Vallo was born in 1968 into the Acoma pueblo. She is a member of the Red Corn Clan and the Small Oak Clan. She grew up in Grants, New Mexico. Her inspiration for continuing a long lived tradition stems from many different sources. However, it was her immediate family who encouraged her to paint. While attending school, Kim would often catch herself sketching pottery designs on paper.

Kim specializes in hand painting ceramic pottery. She hand paints fine line, feather and starburst patterns on a wide variety of shaped pots such as wedding vases, water jugs, ollas and traditional shapes. Recently, Kim began hand coiling traditional pottery and is currently in the early stages of becoming a traditional hand coiling artist. She signs her pottery: Kim Vallo, Acoma, N.M. Kim is related to Leland Vallo, Thomas Vallo (brothers) and the late Simon and Marie Vallo (parents).
