cartoony influences

Kirsty first discovered her cartooning skills at the age of 26 when her paintings began to take on an animated and overly colourful appearance. At this point, she split the two interests: painting and cartooning/educational work.

When taking a rest from painting, Kirsty develops a number of educational projects which include the development of 3 character-led projects. Her painting development remains greatly inspired by these worlds. Infact her small still lives have a doll-like quality. Larger floral works have a magical presence and her seascapes may have a child-like expresive marks. Her sense of colour has almost certainly been influenced by this line of work.
