Kim Harrington met his wife Suzann through an old Navy buddy in 1992. Sue has always been in sales and Ron was one of her clients at Roseville Communications. She had complained to him that she could not find the right guy and Ron immediately called Kim at the studio. They met halfway between Emeryville and Roseville, CA for dinner and the rest is history.
He has never had kids himself (nor his sister, poor mom).He now has a number of grandchildren from Sue’s own children. “For someone who never thought much about a family life, I must admit, I Love all my step grandchildren. Who would have thought!”
He and his wife are Lab lovers—their 4th dog, Shiloh, is now 13 months old.
In 1976 he moved to Eugene, OR where he attended the University of Oregon and studied photography, painting and art history. He was in Eugene for 8 years until he needed to move back south to find the sun, a SoCal boy! (“What can I say!”)
In 1984 he became a member of the Emeryville Artists Community in the SF Bay Area and started a commercial photography business, focusing on architecture, produce and special assignments. His time at the studio will end March 1, 2019 when he sells the studio and leaves it to another young energetic artist.
He now has constructed a smaller studio in the backyard next to the pool and will continue his art. He is now a docent at California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento. He travels with Sue and Shiloh around the country in their tent trailer and looks forward to seeing New England states, Washington DC and all its attractions.
Kim feels that his greatest accomplishment was finally getting married at age 43 to his wonderful wife Sue and running a business for 34 years. (“I am really a shy guy.”)
His favorite memories of Burbank High are his friends there and great experiences after school. He also remembers his 42 Willeys jeep and Bob Elliot’s white van which he bought from him. That van went a whole lot of places with Kim at the wheel.
