Hello, I’m Kirsty, a primary school teacher turned live wedding artist, based in Buckinghamshire.

 

I have been interested in Art my whole life, and started pursuing it at an early age. When it came to university choices, I actually opted for a degree in Commercial Photography (which is coming in very handy now!).

 

In a sudden change of direction, I then trained as a primary school teacher and had a decade long career across several schools in Buckinghamshire.

Meet the Artist

It wasn’t until October 2021, when I attended two weddings in the same week - one of my best friend, and the other my brother-in-law - that the art spark returned!

 

Luckily, my photographic intuition had hung around all those years as I managed to capture two beautiful images from both confetti throws.

Following the weddings, I had the crazy idea that I would paint these two images as gifts for Christmas. Crazy because this came to me mid November, so I had my work cut out. Fast forward to Christmas, and I was so proud and honoured to gift my creations to the happy couples.

It wasn’t until 2022 that I started seeing other artists on TikTok painting weddings, but doing it live! And I immediately thought, I want in on this! So in 2023, after many months of thinking, painting, talking and more thinking, The Live Wedding Painter was born.

Where Did It Start?

Beyond the Studio

I live in Buckinghamshire with my other half, Adam and our adorably fluffy cat, Bazzy. If you're as obsessed with cats as I am, we'll get along just fine!

Outside of my studio, I enjoy staying active and keeping fit and can be found at various Parkrun locations on a Saturday morning as well as tearing up the netball courts during the week.

Being quite competitive, I have a real passion for board games and love discovering new ones to play. I'm also a huge fan of escape rooms!

And I'll say no to watching a 2 hour film because it's too long, but then happily sit there through 3 hours back-to-back episodes of a Netflix series.
