Kirsty Wither is one of the country's most collected women painters. Her rich, vibrant work is immediately recognisable and she has built up a loyal following around the world for her work.

About

I think of a painting in terms of colour first, then texture,  then the subject matter becomes more defined. It's important for me that if someone is looking at a painting all day, it is an uplifting experience — that doesn't mean the paintings are easy or simplistic, rather that they are built up in strong layers that have a lot of oomph and joy about them!

I love the malleability of oil paint before it dries and it’s permanence afterwards.
