Kim Lawrence

Creator of Legacy of Love, This is the Day and Pillars

Kim is a Midwestern girl who was born and raised in central Illinois. She spent her early years painting store windows, school murals, custom t-shirts, logos and many other local projects. She earned a BFA in Illustration from Northern Illinois University, and joined Enesco upon graduation. As a studio artist for Enesco, Kim designs a variety of gifts, figurines and home décor, as well as jewelry and women’s accessories. As an added bonus, Kim met her husband while working at Enesco. He was working in the Enesco Sales Department at the time, and was assigned to her showroom set up team. Twenty-seven years, and 3 kids later, they are still celebrating fun, surprising and ever-changing memories together.

Kim has been drawing, painting, sewing and crafting for years, and she believes "there is nothing quite like the feeling of having an idea, making it come to life and sharing it with the world." She is most inspired when she is able to create items with unusual materials or styles because it allows her to reflect the current trends. One such idea is the "Pillars of Heaven" Nativity, the first of a new type of interactive figurine that invites the viewer to rearrange the pieces in different ways. The interchangeable pieces combined with a storytelling element makes this brand a top seller year after year.
