Kirsten Anderson, Artist
I am an abstract artist who has explored a variety of mediums throughout the course of my career, beginning with tile mosaics circa year 2000. For several years I created, sold and taught intricate design work.
In 2010 I made the switch to 2-D painting, working primarily with acrylics, oils and pastels. My art can be seen in both private homes and commercial buildings across Canada.
I’m an intuitive artist. I develop what my subconscious mind conceives, freeing my consciousness to give the paint and the canvas an opportunity to develop without cognizant influence.
What emerges hasn’t intentionally emulated a scene, a person, or anything anyone else can see. It’s a glimpse into the mind that nobody, myself included, can tangibly view otherwise.
I revel in listening to people discuss my work, what they see, how it makes them feel. Because as the viewer, a few minutes spent contemplating an abstract work will awake the deep channels of your own soul, providing your conscious mind a peek into what’s going on behind the scenes.
