Kirsten developed her artistic flare from her mother Lisa Graa Jensen, an illustrator/painter. Lisa's unique style has a futurist twist, with bold colours, and rich country sights based on local Surrey scenes. Lisa's country scenes are the very setting in which Kirsten gains her ideas.
Lisa graduated from Camberwell School of Art, London in 1978 with a BA Hons degree in Graphic Design/Book Illustration. She has built a successful career, and exhibits her painting in top London galleries.
