Kirstie Behrens

I am a final year Fine Art student at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee. A few years ago I started printmaking at the print workshop at Dundee Contemporary Arts and have specialised in etching.

My subjects have been animal, tree and landscape studies and for a series
of Cairngorm winter scenes I created a series of tall and narrow compositions.

Recently I have been inspired by the remaining trees of St. Michaels Wood between St. Andrews and Dundee and experimented with using colour.

I am a member of PrintroomDundee and so far we have had six group exhibitions within Scotland.

My work has been exhibited at: Royal Scottish Academy; Aberdeen Artists; Royal Glasgow Institute; Visual Arts Scotland; Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries; Edinburgh School of Drawing’ The Braemar Gallery; Roseangle Art Gallery, Dundee as part of “Impact 8” International Printmaking Conference
Edinburgh Art Fair; Frames Gallery, Perth.

For part of my Degree show, I am combining etching, sound and film to create an atmospheric installation.
