Kirsty is a visual artist based in East London. Though she dabbles in video, installation, collage and poetry, she imagines she is primarily a painter – but not one who always uses paint.
She is less interested in definition than exploration, and her work often seeks after the intangible. She enjoys playing with light, texture, words and objects, and rearranging and recreating the interesting things she finds.
Kirsty is a member of Espacio Gallery, an artist-led exhibition space in Bethnal Green, and also curates exhibitions with Spitalfields Studios in Whitechapel. She is currently one of the artists-in-residence on the Continuum programme at Husk, a community cafe and creative space in Limehouse.
