Celebrating strength, energy and authentic beauty, artist Kirsten Todd specialises in portraiture and abstract fine art paintings.
“As a child I always had a paintbrush or a pen in my hand and always knew I wanted to be an artist. My earliest influence and my inspiration for my love of art, was my Uncle John, an artist himself, I used to sit and draw in his studio while he worked. As a teenager I explored lots of different mediums but I found that oils and acrylics were my preference.”
Brush in hand, Lancashire artist born and bred, Kirsten studied art and acquired a BA Honours Degree in Graphic Design. Having then pursued a career in design for over 25 years, Kirsten continued to paint as her passion and purpose.
In 2018 Todd was shortlisted as Finalist in the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. The artist then achieved recognition the following year in Final Selections at the Harris Museum Open Exhibition and the ‘Wraptious’ National Art Competition, to name a couple. A finalist in an ‘Emerging Artist Award’ in 2019 and 2020, Todd exhibited across the UK and has a growing number of collectors.
The artist’s most recent collection is titled ‘Rise of the Divine Feminine’ which celebrates both vulnerability and strength as well as authentic beauty. An extraordinarily vibrant pallet fuses Todd’s portraiture with abstract pattern and shape. Kirsten works intuitively, allowing each painting to evolve and develop and permitting her to express what she recognises as her ‘inner voice’ as she hopes to empower the world around her.
“Besides all that I am a Mum, a black belt in TaeKwonDo, a yogi, a Reiki master, a medium, a Parashiel’s Balm Healer, a flautist, a pianist, a music lover, a keep fit enthusiast, a rider of horses, a pet owner, and chief cook and bottle washer!”
“I hope that with my art I can bring an element of joy to the beholder, give a lasting memory and put forth the energy held within the paintings that is needed for the recipient.” Kirsten Todd
