Kirsten Jackson is an Australian artist who began painting as a child and studied visual Arts at RMIT.  Painting is a natural normal part of her everyday life.

Kirsten has been exploring and pushing the boundaries of acrylic and oil painting with her love of textures and “unpredictable – almost “accidental” – forms, using multiple layering techniques, translucent glazes and color vanishes. Kirsten says her: “main motivation is to portray the inherent beauty and harmony that exists in the inter-relationship of color, composition and form. I work intuitively using the language of color, light and texture to produce art that pushes, pulls, pulses and speaks fluently to the senses.

When not painting Kirsten pursues her other passions – spending time with her family and running along the beach trails and training for marathons!

Kirsten’s work has been published in the 2004 and 2005 Canterbury Art Exhibition calendars, Home Beautiful magazine in 2005, the Herald Sun in 2007 and The Age 2011.  Her art is included in many private collections in Australia and overseas
