Hi, I’m Kirsty Black a contemporary New Zealand abstract artist, painting from my studio in Maraetai, Auckland.

Contemporary abstract artist Kirsty Black, painting in her studio, in Maraetia, Auckland, New Zealand

“Weaving childhood memories with storylines and explosions of colour. Kirsty Black’s abstract art is like visual poetry. Instead of words and sentences, she intuitively uses colour, shape, line, form, pattern and texture to create a visual dance of the spirit.”
