Born in Fife, Scotland, Kirsten's original artworks have been inspired by the nature and wildlife around her growing up. The most recent collection of work spanning the past five years has been focusing on both exotic and endangered wildlife in a highly realistic style. Each painting is created “hair by hair” and can take many months to complete. Her inspiration mainly comes from the animals themselves, Kirsten aims to recreate the power and grace of these animals and immortalise that into painting form. Kirsten is completely self taught, spending most of her time in her studio trying new techniques and materials to enhance her art. Many of her pieces now live in their forever homes all over the world, with collectors in USA and Europe.
