Kirste Vandergiessen is a Riverland-based digital illustrator and writer. She picked up a graphics tablet in 2014, found layer settings for overlays and glowing, and never looked back. Between drawing fan art of characters she holds dear, she's planning and writing a young adult novel about non-crystal-ball-wielding psychics.
You may have seen her work in the 2019 SALA Exhibition 'it starts with a spark~', on the wall of Bonney Theatre for the collaborative 'Letters to the Riverland' projection project or on her Instagram @flamedork.
Letters to Blue produced and presented by Part of Things with support from the Mental Health Coalition's Mental Health Week Rural Grants.
