Kirsty's work in hospitals



Kirsty was born in Adelaide in 1983, and even as a child she was always drawing pictures! Her passions are creating art and teaching kids to draw.

Kirsty finished school in 2000 and went on to study Visual Communication and Graphic Design while working at a primary school for kids with intellectual disabilities. In 2004 she moved to Sydney to work at Art House Gallery (Rushcutters Bay), working with highly successful contemporary Australian artists. Kirsty’s art is highly influenced by all of the artsits she worked with during this time.

In 2007 Kirsty set up her own art classes for kids in Sydney and continued to run weekly when she moved back to Adelaide in 2010. Branching out to include many artist in residence programs in schools, Kirsty spent 2 years developing her brainchild:


. This website is full of video kids art classes (based on the Australian National Curriculum) and is designed as a resource for primary teachers.

Kirsty’s solo exhibitions include:
2009 “Mud” at the Sydney Children’s Hospital (Public Art Collection aquired 2 pieces),
2010 “Happiness” at the Tin Cat Cafe (She won the SALA Festival Young Emerging Artist Award)
2011 “Am I Dreaming?” at the Tin Cat Cafe
2012 “The Field” at the Tin Cat Cafe.

Kirsty has worked in several volunteer roles; as a Surf Life Saver (Coogee Beach, NSW), as a Camp Quality ‘companion’ (NSW) and as an artist at Sydney Children’s Hospital creating artworks with kids in the oncology ward. Through her work at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Kirsty was also asked to create a huge kids mural in the neighbouring Prince of Wales Hospital (Randwick, NSW) for the radiation treatment ward (unveiled in 2009). Kirsty also worked as Captain “Creative” Starlight at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital with the Starlight Children’s Foundation prior to becoming a mum in 2013.

Kirsty works from her home studio in Adelaide and lives with her partner, their daughter, son and dog!
