Kirsty Whiten

Kirsty makes drawings and paintings of humans, often with a dark sense of humour and a challenge to the viewer. You'll find large canvases and tiny watercolour illustrations, a great deal of expressive charcoal life-drawings and her artistbooks about ritual and healing. She graduated from ECA in 1999, has exhibited internationally.

Open Studios Event: this year the artist is accepting visitors to their studio.

Directions: The Elm is the newish white house beside the school. From Cupar, enter the village passing by the (now closed) inn on your right hand side. Continue past a row of cottages and the school playground, and as you begin to go up the hill, the Elm is on the right, with a red postbox on the wall.
Access: Access to the house is on street level, but the studio is on the first floor.
Points of Interest: The studio is within walking distance of the National Trust Property, Hill of Tarvit mansion house. There are shops and cafes in nearby Ceres. We have a large garden and picnic table on a sheltered deck if you need a pit stop.
