Kirsty Wither studied at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen from 1986 – 1990 and has worked as a full time painter ever since. Her heavily impasto oil paintings showcase her love of colour and texture, she begins by staining the canvas with raw, pure colour and then builds up the image in layers working mostly with a palette knife. Kirsty’s work is held in many private collections across the world and continues to be much sought after.
“Being in the studio is a mysterious place where the paint takes over from any set ideas I start with and often unexpectedly leads me to a finished work. The paintings are as much about the actual paint on the surface as about the subject matter.”
