About Kirsten


Island artist Kirsten Bunney has been living and working in Upcountry Maui since 1987. Originally from Australia, her art background includes illustration, album cover design, large scale interior projects and stage design for concert production.

Kirsten combines pen and ink with gouache and watercolor to express the bright, tropical beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. Her paintings are gradually woven together with layer upon layer of color and detail. Kirsten's unique sense of style and color has been developed from a mix of cross-cultural influences, particularly time spent living and working in Bali. Her mother and grandfather were both avid painters and colorists.

Kirsten's work has been purchased by the State Foundation for Culture and the Arts in Hawaii and hangs in private collections worldwide.
