About the artist
After completing an art foundation at Camberwell College, Kirsten studied for her degree in fine art at Leeds. As part of her degree show she combined huge six-foot woodcuts with screen prints, being drawn to the sculptural quality of the carved woodcut print juxtaposed to the graphic quality of the screen print.
In more recent years she's focussed on portrait painting in oils. Enjoying working on larger canvasses which lend themselves better to expressive brush work.
Kirsten set up ArtStart Art School in 2016 when her children were still at western road primary. Coming from a career in digital marketing, she decided to go back to her art, enabling her to have more quality time with her children. From its humble beginnings on her kitchen table, in the basement of her Lewes home. ArtStart is now well established with a large studio space at 14 Star Brewery with 50+ children per week and classes 5 days a week for adults and children.
