Kirsten is a contemporary, semi abstract landscape painter, primarily painting in acrylic or oil paint, whose work sells internationally. Her landscapes are inspired by her surrounding environment in Cornwall but she uses shapes, lines and texture to draw the viewer into dreamlike scenes which evoke memories of places.
Kirsten studied Fine Art in Exeter and continued her professional development at Newlyn Art School. She lives and works in Penzance.
