Kirsty Elson -Artist

Kirsty is a multi-media artist living in Cornwall. She originally studied Illustration, specialising in Printmaking, at Cambridge School of Art.  After moving back to the South West, and becoming mum to two boys, she couldn’t restrain her creativity any longer and she began making cards from local driftwood.

Since then, she has become more and more interested in creating beautiful pieces from driftwood and other found objects, and has become quite well-aquainted with her sewing machine!

She is inspired by all things coastal and unsurprisingly her seaside surroundings have a big influence on her work.

Kirsty loves the idea of using found objects like driftwood and turning them into something beautiful and unique.
