Who Am I?
Hello my name is Kirsty, I am a U.K artist and photographer based in Wetherby, West Yorkshire. I paint, photograph and do my husbands accounts for a living, as well as looking after a 4 year old, 2 dogs and a tortoise. I sell my original canvas art and prints all over the U.K. including commissioned pieces. What i am most proud of is that I am an artist that is 100% self taught, I don't have any formal art training and have never studied art. I am fascinated with colour, form, shape and how art can be applied and interpreted by others.
What I do..
I create imaginative and energetic paintings using all types of mediums and apply them using household items such as pallet knives, 2" brushes, card, kitchen roll, window squeegee, brillo pads, basically anything i can get my hands on that will create an amazing effect.
I also love to draw realistic and mandala art with pencil and ink. My favourite drawing to date has to be the one I did of Marcello Bielsa (Leeds United Manager) and I was lucky enough to have him sign it. He has a Framed print of my original hanging on his wall!
How I Do It..
I work long days 7 days a week to be able to fit everything i do in. My determination and passion to succeed is my driving force to make it happen. All the art on this site and what I sell is created only by me, I even hand make all the frames for the canvases I paint, to make it a unique experience for any customer. What you see is what you get!
Like all artists I take my inspiration not only from my fellow artists but from my raw emotions, and vision of what I want to achieve for that individual piece of artwork. Artists that have influenced and inspired me over the years are Claude Monet, J.M.W. Turner,Jackson Pollock, Georges Seurat, John Singer Sargent, Tai Shan Schierenberg Bob Ross and many more.
