Her bright artworks are as contagiously bubbly as Kirsten herself, who still equates painting with peace.
She likens walking into her studio to breezing through a yoga class. “I love my studio,” she says of the fresh white space, which provides a tranquil backdrop for her vibrant pieces. “My breathing changes and I get that ‘ahhh’ feeling. It’s like my meditation.”
"There was this gallery in Melbourne, and the guy who owns it is lovely and I went in with my paintings and he was like, ‘No, no, no… I like one centimetre of this one million-centimetre painting; can you do it like that?’ So I kept going back to him, over two years with this painting and eventually, he goes, ‘Oh, my god, I love it!’ So he started selling my work."
