My name is Kirsty Bruce and I’m a 16 year old aspiring artist from Turriff, Aberdeenshire. I currently sell a variety of paintings mainly in watercolour and acrylic and animals are my favourite subject matter. I’m currently studying Higher Art and Design at school and hope to keep improving my creative skills into the future.
In June 2017 as part of a small group from Turriff Academy, I’ll be embarking on a 21-day expedition to Tanzania, East Africa. This experience of a lifetime will consist of two charity projects and exploration of the continent’s iconic scenery. We will be working closely with children from the local communities and also help to better their lives by providing them with much needed facilities and materials such as improvements to schools and the building of water wells.
All profit raised from the selling of my paintings will go towards funding my expedition, and ultimately improving the lives of the less fortunate.
Requests for commissions, or pet portraits etc can be made through my Facebook page: ‘Art by Kirsty Bruce’
I started painting in 2011 after retiring from running a bed and breakfast in Longside. I now live in Lonmay and am fortunate in having my studio in the garden.
My favourite media is watercolour. With pen and ink a close second. Favourite subjects are Birds and Beasts which is also the title of my Facebook page, which also shows a gallery of work for sale.
I hope you enjoy seeing my work here at Cafe Connect. 20% of sales goes to Cafe Connect. A worthy cause. My thanks to them for displaying my paintings.
