My Bio
Kirsten is a young artist and scholar who enjoys photography, acrylic painting, pencil sketching, and biomedical illustration. She has always been very artistic; she took art every year in high school and various courses at university. Kirsten has an Hon. B.Sc. Biology Specialist with a minor in Biomedical Communications from the University of Toronto.

Kirsten’s photography often includes flowers and other plants, landscapes, water scenes (sometimes even underwater), planes, and the occasional industrial structure. She enjoys vibrant colours, or black & white; usually looking for a different view or a different angle, especially with her many macro images. She has also recently started learning more about astrophotography and lunar photography.

In contrast to her photography, Kirsten tends to paint abstract, organic or technical pieces with an attention to small details. In both her photography and acrylics, Kirsten enjoys triptych; using images in sets of three.

Kirsten’s current pencil sketching is closer to science than to art as she sketches bones to scan and set up as textbook drawings. This is just one example of the many different types of biomedical illustration she has learned; others include digital painting, vector art, flash design, web design, and even 3D animation (used to reconstruct the facial features from a 3D scanned skull).

Though I have been busy with designing a new website (not for me), I needed to get back into the studio…actually I did some new test painting down in Toronto while visiting friends after New Years, I just hadn't scanned them yet. I have been painting with acrylic inks. What are acrylic inks? Where did you get this crazy idea? I will tell you… Back in high school I took graphic and comprehensive art and at one time

But, I did get out there with my mom to see shooting stars, and we saw more in one hour than we had ever seen in our life! We recently moved to the country so there are less city lights interfering with our view of the stars. Sadly, as I have noticed in my recent attempts at "astrophotography," there is still some light pollution where we live. Anyways, I tried to capture s

So Many Things

So Many Things

So, I realized that I should probably get with the times and try out all this new and crazy social media stuff to help promote my art. Nothing makes you feel older than 20 than social media! I got a bit of a taste over the last few days of how my parents must feel about computers and cell phones. It's been years and they still don't fully understand how computers/the internet really works even if I try explaining it. At least they have the basics enough to use Google and have email; that's all they really need. I did some research on the many different social media services out there and signed up for five more than I already had; a Facebook
