Kirsten Thune - Visual Artist

Artist Kirsten Thune paints works both on canvas and items such as cups, plates and pots

Great sense of colour

“Creativity has always been a part of my like. I started out painting with oils, but later found acrylics better suited my temperament. The inspiration to paint comes from everything around me - from my mood or simply from playing with colour and images on paper, canvas, or bamboo plates.

I don’t feel I paint in any specific style, but perhaps my own style will develop one day. At present I am curious and I want to try work in different styles. I am happy with the calm I express in my bird pictures, but I also like to hang canvases with bold colours on my walls. My bowls can be a little more dramatic with their strong vibrant colours, but they fit very well into modern homes.” - Kirsten Thune
