“Visual Alchemy” is an opportunity to explore the lessons of what it means to be a soulful human, using visual art and the language of words. With bold color and multi-layers of possibility, Kimberly invites the reader on a journey to source their own alchemy. Each painting is a meditation in and of itself. There is space for personal interpretation as well as invitations to go deeper with the accompanying words that read as poetic guides. It is a gift to be reminded of our abundant nature with messages from Source, from animals and, from the heart.

Visual Alchemy is a powerful book that is needed in the world today. Kimberly’s art transmutes your being as you look at the images and read the words. I especially love her commitment to the betwixt in-between places where we need time to integrate the image into our being. For me, the topics of grief and initiation compel you to want to go deeper into yourself. I love her work and this latest heartfelt creation of questing into our hearts, psyches, and souls.
What a treasure! Not only is the illustration work breathtakingly beautiful- what the book has to say is equally gorgeous. My 10 year old and I both loved it… and the prompts/ questions in the book led us into a wonderful mother/ daughter conversation. Will be buying more for Christmas presents!
Incredible artistry, fun font and brilliant colors fill this engaging book! Awesome gift not only for children but for teachers, parents and therapists. I will cherish my copy forever!

I love my book by Artist Kimberly Heil. The artwork is delightful, whimsical, and tickles a smile out of your mouth. The messages of gifts, of recognizing and appreciating uniqueness, are perfect gentle prods for youngsters at heart to learn to reflect on their own gifts. I recommend this lovely book at as gift for any child and everyone who loves beauty, fancy, and connection.
Visual Alchemy is a feast for the imagination and the soul. Kim Heil’s stunning paintings combine the dreamlike lucidity of folk art with the subtlety of deep spiritual experience. Her accompanying prose poems are powerfully evocative. The resulting book is, in the best alchemical tradition, pure gold. It will enchant people on every stage of their life’s journey,Vici Williams – Psychotherapist, Tarot Reader, and Devotee of the Sacred Arts
