Kirsty was born in 1977 and grew up in the south side of Glasgow. She is a self taught artist who very much loves the sea. Her passion in life, surfing, has taken her all over the world. She has been living in Cornwall since 2006.
Kirsty’s connection with the Isle of Bute began when she was 13 years old. Her father married a Brandane and moved to the island. Kirsty has never lived on the isle permanently but has been visiting the isle for over 20 years; she loves the island very much and says every time she returns it feels like she is coming home.
Kirsty paints from her own photographs and memories on to canvas with acrylic or oil.
