Kirsten Jones was born on the coast then lived on the island of Jersey before setting up her studio in Henley on Thames. Water has always been a part of her life and she finds inspiration in coastal towns, particularly in Devon and Cornwall. Kirsten works with washes and splashes of acrylic paint, gouache and pencils on paper. Her work is fresh, vibrant and layered with a strong narrative told through collaged fragments of text and maps. Current themes include seascapes and gardens or bunches of flowers relating to a special time or place.
