Kirsty Fyfe

Printmaker Kirsty Fyfe works from her home studio in Wellington on her own printing press.

Her current love is aquatint etching; a fascinating alchemical process that is part creativity and part chemistry. Her etchings often explore childhood and try to capture the essence of secret moments or memories in children’s lives.

“Childhood is full of dark and light moments; and intaglio etching lends itself to exploring these moments.”

Kirsty has exhibited in Wellington, Auckland and other North Island centres.  Her work is held in private collections both in New Zealand and overseas.
