A DIGITAL artist who has overcome health struggles to continue pursuing her passion now has her art displayed by a West Kilbride gallery.

Kirsty Stewart, who is also known as Karma Skulls online, will have her art exhibited in 118 Main Street through Gallery Sometimes as she has been named their artist of the week.

Kirsty said: “I started working as a full time digital illustrator in 2019 after my health limitations due to Psoriatic Arthritis meant I could no longer work standing on my feet. So the change from 13 years as a pharmacy dispenser to an artist was a gamble that paid off!

“I moved to digital art due to health - with drawing on my iPad being much more comfortable than slaving over large canvases, although I do miss traditional work. I may dabble in smaller traditional pieces in the near future.”

Having amassed an online following of over 2,000 people across Facebook and Instagram, Kirsty has created logos for a variety of customers ranging from brands to Twitch streamers.

The 31-year-old artist, who is originally from Glasgow, runs an online business through Etsy and social media where she takes commissions and sells her work, and is known in particular for her art depicting reptiles.

To view or commission her work, visit her Facebook and Instagram pages as well as her Etsy store.
