Fiercely independent Australian artist Kirsten Jackson seeks to suffuse the whole world with radiant beacons of painted happiness!
Collectors from Europe, Hong Kong and the US are enamoured by the unique personality and spirited colour palette found in Kirsten’s original paintings and prints. Working in impasto style with a variety of acrylic mediums, each work is infused with a boundless energy and joy for life that is 100% pure Kirsten. Her determination to exude shameless, infectious happiness everyday through her art has made Kirsten a beloved fixture among the Australian art community.
A life-long love of painting and studying Visual Arts at RMIT, inspired Kirsten’s vibrant career as an abstract artist. Expressionist in style, her first series, “Faces” depicts figurative portraits of Kirsten’s late mother, whom Kirsten strongly believes guided her to art. Whilst her work has since evolved into a texturally rich exploration of colour, light and space, Kirsten’s earlier portraits spontaneously take form in her works to this day.
Kirsten’s works can be found gracing the glossy pages of magazines like Home Beautiful, Inside Out, Real Living and Modern Home Magazine and her paintings were hand-selected to adorn the walls of nearly every room in Southbank’s Aria Hotel. Meanwhile, her joy-sparking global journey continues with (frequently sold-out) shows in New York, London, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, Hamburg, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Brussels, Milan, Sydney and her hometown of Melbourne.
