Recently relocated from the San Francisco Bay Area, Kimberly Sikora now lives and works in Twentynine Palms, CA, where she is renovating a former jackrabbit homestead from the 1950s land boom. From 2014-2015, she traveled alone around the United States for one year shooting “A Season Of Solitude On The Road,” a photography book publishing in July 2017 through Edition One Books. Former artist-in-residence at Kala Art Institute, she holds a BFA in Photography from Rhode Island School of Design, and has shown work in exhibitions at the Berkeley Art Center, Adobe Books Backroom Gallery in San Francisco, Kala Art Institute, and Artists Space, among others.

Formerly an adjunct educator at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Sikora has also held teaching positions at Kala Art Institute, Southern Exposure Gallery, along with other non-profit art institutions in the San Francisco Bay Area, Manhattan and Brooklyn, NY. She was employed with the Headlands Center for the Arts for the 2014 summer residency season as a program intern. In her capacity as the Community Engagement Director at photo lab Dickerman Prints, she founded an artists-in-residence program and monthly exhibition series, collaborating with 4×5 Gallery and the Harvey Milk Photo Center.
