I am Marina Kim, a professional portrait artist and painter-printmaker.
Please find here an introduction to our business.
For detailed documents, please see these pages:
I grew up in Uzbekistan, the former USSR, and graduated from the Republican Art College in Tashkent. Since 2000 I have lived in the UK. As well as in my gallery, I exhibit works at many prestigious UK and international art events.
I create fine art pieces in many painting and graphic mediums, which I sell in ROCHE Gallery, Rye, and from my online shop. You will find a wide variety of art mediums and styles in both outlets: oil and acrylic paintings, drawings, etchings, drypoints, mezzotint prints, screenprints etc.
I am a professional portrait painter, experienced and empathetic. I undertake portrait commissions painted from life sittings and photographs.
ROCHE Gallery, which is also my studio, is in the historical little town of Rye on the South East coast of England. My husband Tim Roche and I founded it in February 2002 and have been in business since, organising exhibitions, selling fine art and providing framing services.
Much of my art is about living in a small English town, raising a family and being part of the local community.

We strive to process your order within 24 hours and guarantee to post no later than in 3 days. If there is a delay, we will write to you about it as soon as possible.
We offer free shipping around the world. As a rule, we use Royal Mail First Class and Parcel Force for larger artwork and international shipping.

Whether you buy art for yourself or as a gift for someone you love, there is a risk of not loving it as much as you anticipated when you saw it on a computer or a phone screen. That’s why we decided to double the conventional one-month grace period. In the unlikely event that you don’t love the artwork purchased from Marina Kim Art and Roche Gallery, you are welcome to return it within 60 days, no questions asked! We will refund the total of your purchase minus our expenses for the Packaging and Posting (with the receipts enclosed). Please, arrange the return at your expense and ensure you return the artwork in the condition you received it.
