KIRSTY RUTTER

I am a long term resident of Campbellville, and I have been intrigued by art since I was a child, but each time I started to create I was held back by my need to be perfect and to make sure that everyone loved it (heaven forbid someone did not like something I did)!     A few years ago, as part of my ongoing journey of self discovery, I found and ignited a spark of rebellion, with art as my outlet.

 

I use my passion for colour, texture and the flow of acrylic paint to express myself.      As I find and explore who I am or who I want to be, my emotions come onto the canvas as I feel them.  Happiness, anger, sadness, strength, calm.  I never know what abstract piece I will create when I pick up a brush, a knife, a sponge....but I don't need to know.  The joy is in the creation.

 

If any of my work speaks to you or helps to inspire you on your own journey, then I am myself further inspired.
