FINE ART PAINTING

Kirsten Boston is a Scottish artist who has lived and worked in the beautiful coastal region of East Lothian for most of her life.

KIRSTEN’S STORY

Kirsten Boston was brought up in East Lothian, where she attended school in North Berwick.After spending time in London, Kirsten returned to Scotland in 2002 with her young family and established Hangar Art & Framing, an art gallery and picture framing service at Fenton Barns Retail Park, near North Berwick.
Kirsten paints mainly in acrylics and watercolours but increasingly works in mixed-media and her love of design, typography and silhouettes lead her to explore some interesting new styles.

The ever-changing seascapes she sees on her daily journey between home and work are the biggest influence on Kirsten’s art. The coastline of the Firth of Forth, the well-loved inshore islands of Fidra and the Bass Rock and the vast skies with the Lammermuir Hills in the middle distance, appear different every day giving a constant source of colour, light and inspiration.

East Lothian is famed by artists for its beautiful light. This is rarely so understandable as when studying Kirsten’s paintings of beautiful sea-side houses and buildings along the beach-front in North Berwick. Capturing their reflections in the bay and the incredible overhead light, these works are unmistakably “East Lothian” to those who have experienced those unique shades & tones. They’re popular with both locals and visitors, wanting to take home a little bit of that unique North Berwick light.

Kirsten’s involvement with Hangar Art & Framing, her picture framing business, gives her daily contact and interface with other artists, which is a constant source of inspiration and encouragement to her and offers a valuable opportunity for exchange of ideas and new techniques.  She also loves design and enjoys the incorporation of silhouettes and typography into her work.  Kirsten has created a Collection of Word Art images depicting the attractions and characteristics of famous cities and local towns, and can personalise them or create a unique one for a special occasion or person, for a truly one-off gift.

Kirsten sells her works through her retail arm, ArtHangar, which also takes in the Art & Picture Hanging consultancy for your home, office and place of work, ArtHangar@Home. You will find Kirsten’s original works in the gallery shop at Hangar Framing and in several other galleries round Edinburgh and the Lothians, including The Scottish Design Exchange in Ocean Terminal, Edinburgh and the Why Not? Gallery Shop in North Berwick.

 

You can enjoy browsing through her online Portfolio and can buy prints online. Kirsten is happy to take commissions, so feel free to get in touch if you would like her to create something specifically for you.

In those locations and through The ArtHangar on Etsy.com, you’ll find a wide range of Kirsten’s Giclée prints, including her popular Collections of Land & Seascapes, Vintage Map Silhouettes, Wildlife Watercolours, Buildings and stylish Word Art.

Prints are available both framed and unframed – the prints are available at Hangar Framing in a more diverse range of frames – or you can of course choose your own frame.
