“I build layer upon layer of texture, while the colour carries emotion; capturing and reflecting light. It grows and grows until finally it explodes in a vibrant visual delight.”
Painting for Kirsten Jackson is a meditative process. She uses art as a positive outlet; centering herself in the solitude of her studio with little more than her canvas and paints to create works that project happiness upon the viewer and herself. She moves near-finished works from the studio into her own home, communing with a piece for several weeks until satisfied it is truly done.
Collectors from Europe, Hong Kong and the US are enamoured by the unique personality and spirited colour palette found in Kirsten’s paintings. Working in impasto style with a variety of acrylic mediums, each work is infused with a boundless energy and joy for life that is 100% pure Kirsten. Her determination to exude shameless, infectious happiness everyday through her art has made her a beloved fixture among the Australian art community.
