Kimball started drawing at the age of 6, and has continued to amaze people with her talent. “My first drawing was of a hand holding a rose,” said Kimball. “When she came to our school last year and I saw her work, I immediately knew she was very talented and that it all came so natural to her,” said Thunderbolt Middle School Principal Mari Jo Mulligan. “I just kept thinking how amazing she was.” When Kimball is not sketching she keeps busy by taking an acrylic painting class and spends time writing.
