Kirsten was very easy to work with and checked in to make sure piece was meeting my expectations along the way. It turned out beautifully. I'm so impressed how she captured my kids with out ever meeting them.

About

Kirsten Francis

I make art out of incomplete drawings, paper scraps, left over art supplies, and other detritus because these materials are available to me, and the process of constructing something beautiful out of them suit the inconsistent tempo of my everyday life.
I draw the human face and figure because they never cease to fascinate me. For convenience, my subjects are people close to me who are willing to be part of my art. The drawings are never truly finished- only the faces and hands are ever completed before I move on to the next stage of the process.
I tear up books, slice into my old woodblock prints, and cut my drawings out of the paper they’re drawn on. The destruction is disquieting but also liberating- there are wonderful possibilities to be found in these colorful pieces of paper.
Usually each piece of art resolves itself in a manner that I didn’t foresee and didn’t even think was possible. For me, finishing each piece is a small triumph and pushes me on to the next.
