For 16 years Kirsty has been a successful New Zealand artist capturing the intensity of colour and light of New Zealand landscapes and coastal scenes. Her exhibitions consistently sell well and her growth in popularity is a testament to the timeless quality and detail of her landscape scenes.
Her appeal and recognition as one of New Zealand's
foremost landscape artists has been celebrated in
national art publications such as Art News and Asian Art News.

She also features in the New Zealand Favourite Artists book edited by Denis Robinson 2010 edition.
Her range and experience in different techniques such as watercolour, etching and acrylic on canvas is further proof of her popularity amongst collectors. Kirsty's best loved land-scapes include
her compositions of vibrant red flax and pohutukawa flowers, rolling green hills, clear blue skys and seas and yellow sandy beaches.

Years ago when our children started school, I met one of my best friends. We were fortunate to have our kids gravitate toward each other in the new entrant class along with a group of about
six others whose mums I also consider special. There was something about that first year at school. I look back now at those divine 1st year photos and thank God we timed it right meeting each other. Not only were our oldest children the same age but our youngest boys were too and maybe that’s why the connection was so strong. This one special friend had bought some land with her husband on Kawau Island. We watched as they designed and built the most
spectacular getaway in Hideaway Cove, Bon Accord Harbour.
Looking back I remember the cardboard mock-up they made, their funny camping stories while building and how we used to dream that one day we would sit on the cantilevered deck with cocktails and watch the sunset through the Kanuka. Now it is a reality and we have shared many a coffee, bottle of wine and meal on that very deck. Once on the ferry, everything winds down. That smell of diesel and gritty salty seats signals we are nearly there. Long walks, swims, games, fun, loud kids and laziness.Waking to the cackle of Kookaburra and falling asleep to the calling Weka. Sneaking around corners on walks in the hope of catching sight of the elusive Wallaby.
We talk over magazines as we paint our nails and count Kereru, the 747’s of the avian world, as they sit heavy and high in the branches. And when the day is over and dishes done, we shine torches up into the trees as we listen to Morepork hoo-hooing each other in the dark. Tiny owls, swooping and hunting as we rest. Thanks Mel and Larry for treating us to Paradise.
