Kirkland Smith  -  Studio 13


Kirkland Smith is a classical painter who follows the traditions of the old masters by painting figures and still lives from models. The subject in all her paintings is light-  how it moves across the objects she is painting, revealing shape, form, and texture.

She has recently become involved in creating contemporary environmental artwork using non-recyclable materials and post-consumer waste to make 3-Dimensional paintings. Through her artwork, she hopes to give the message of the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling in a fun way. Kirkland received a BA from the University of South Carolina and studied classical painting in Southwest France. She and her husband have 4 children.
