Tranquil and beautiful original fine art from the landscape of New Zealand
Step inside my world... Art from the heart of New Zealand,
brought to you by Kirsten McIntosh.
Painting is my passion and I have loved it since I was young. Its only now that I am confident enough to share it with the world and hope that you love it as much as I do!
A walk with my family or a short drive yields special scenes to be photographed and brought back to my home studio.
I see opportunities for painting all around me. “The roadside grasses, the clouds and the late afternoon sun.
I enjoy the challenge of capturing the reflections of rocks and clouds in the water and especially the clouds.
“Every painting I do, I look for a challenge. This helps me to develop my techniques.”
Certainly In aiming to tie my works together and establish a consistent style, I work with a limited colour palette. Such as, representing our New Zealand Landscape I use only a few rich colours.
I've been told that my paintings make people feel calm and tranquil and this is want I want to achieve. There are many benefits in buying my artwork and I want to bring to you a very professional piece of art. Benefits include:
"Kirsten was great to work with from start to finish. She asked questions about what our preferences were for all aspects of the work. Kirsten is a good listener and asked for feedback regularly and took this on board. We are so pleased with the artwork Kirsten did for us. It was a pleasure having Kirsten work on the Cromwell commission for us and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. We would be happy to commission Kirsten again - we are so pleased with the painting she did for us."

"We commissioned Kirsten to do two paintings for us and are thrilled with both of them. Part of the pleasure of the paintings is being able to see the love and effort Kirsten puts into her work.
She kept us up to date with progress with photos and we were welcomed to her studio as well.

I am happy to take on all commissions. Helping to make your home/office a warm, comforting and inviting place to be.
A wide range of painting subjects have been tackled over the years. I will lend my hand to any project big or small.
Often clients love previous works that I have done. Using this inspiration e.g. colours/shape/style we can come up with a plan.
The end result:
I want for the client to resonate with the piece and for them to have fond memories of a familiar place, memory or feeling that they will treasure for many many years to come.
