Kirsten Riley

Kirsten has a theatrical background. She was a founder member of Playwrights East and has acted, directed and taught Speech and Drama. She has always been fascinated by the way art is used as a means of expression and has spent many years encouraging and eliciting this in some form or another. About 18 years ago she began to sculpt and work with clay exploring a new medium in order to enhance her own means of expression and creative instinct. She took a City and Guilds course in Creative Techniques and exhibited and sold her work. This led to painting and a diploma course at Anteros in Norwich and many other courses in drawing and painting in different mediums. She now has a studio in the centre of Norwich surrounded by a community of artists and continues to create, exhibit and sell her work.

The Themes that inspire her are the changing and challenging outside world and her own inner world. It is often the ebb and flow of life and how it has formed and effected her and her own subconscious that she is reflecting on and exploring through her art.

She works freely in mixed media and is often led by the process, layering and stripping back, adding and subtracting, working on several pieces at once in a call and respond practice. She feels there is some alchemy involved when the work takes over and evolves.
