Kirstie Trobe — Painter
I am a practicing watercolour artist and art tutor who specialises in figurative work. I am happy to accept commissions. In normal times I tutor my own Watercolour classes which are currently running online via Zoom as well as producing online video tutorials for my students. The online meetings have proven to be tremendous fun and a great way to meet new students and mindfully pass a few hours during lockdown.
I also tutor watercolour classes at Worcester Arts Workshop and occasionally guest tutor the Life Drawing and Portraiture Classes there.
This would have been my third year exhibiting with Worcestershire Open Studios, but the first time as a solo participant. Currently I have been selected to exhibit at the Broadway Arts Festival Open Arts Exhibition which is online until 31 December.
I studied Graphic Design at Southampton but was very lucky to be able to return to the world of art once most of my six children left home. Subsequently, five have returned since lockdown but my art provides the perfect excuse to make time for myself as well as enjoying the shared experience of a love of art in the company of my students.www.facebook.com/KirstieTrobeFineArt
