Scottish artist Kirsty Wither obtained her BFA in painting from Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen in 1990. Since then she has exhibited regularly in solo and group shows all over the UK and became an Elected Artist Member of Chelsea Arts Club in 2004.
Kirsty works primarily in oils, stating that she 'love(s) the malleability of oil paint before it dries and it’s permanence afterwards.' She is influenced by early Modernist painters such as Cézanne and Matisse in the sense that the composition of forms and texture of the materials is of at least equal importance to her as the subject matter of her work. She is featured in the title 'Dictionary of Scottish Painters: 1600 to the Present', Paul Harris and Julian Halsby (2011) as well as receiving regular coverage in the international press such as 'House and Garden' magazine in 2017 where one of her paintings was featured, a 'Harpers Bazaar' online piece celebrating female artists in 2014, the 'Huffington Post' art fair recommendations also in 2014 and 'The Spectator' arts feature by William Cook in 2013.
Kirsty's work is held in the collections of Eastwood District Council, Glasgow, Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, Gleacher & Co, London, Misys plc, London as well as in private collections worldwide.
