Kirsten Boston was born in West Lothian, but was brought up mostly in East Lothian, where she schooled in North Berwick.

After spending time in London, Kirsten returned to North Berwick in 2002 where she established an art gallery and picture framing service at Fenton Barns Retail Village – ‘Hangar Framing’.

She paints mainly in acrylics and watercolours and Kirsten’s love of local Scottish landscapes, the sea and sky greatly influence her work. Kirsten also loves design using silhouettes and typography. Kirsten’s involvement in the framing business gives her daily contact and interface with other artists, which she also finds a constant source of inspiration and encouragement.

Kirsten exhibits at established Edinburgh and East Lothian galleries as well as throughout the country.
