Artist Profile

Kirby Kahl is an abstract, intuitive artist currently based in Washougal, Washington. Born into a military family in Raleigh, North Carolina, she lived in multiple countries and all over the USA before settling down in Texas. A time split between Houston and San Antonio, Texas and a passion for travel led her to finding great joy in the natural world and small moments others may not notice. 

Kirby predominantly worked in the digital world as a video editor and photographer before shifting into the world of acrylics. Her work is intuitive, expressive and alive with color. Although, you’ll rarely find her wearing much color. Often inspired by the tiniest of flowers popping up in the middle of a field, or an odd rock found on an adventure; each painting captures a feeling, or a moment in time which was once fleeting but now alive, eternally.

Still an emerging artist, she’s had work showcased at ADX Portland as part of Art.V, Art at the Cave as part of Art of the Quarantine and the Society of Washington Artists 2020 Fall Show as well as in private collections.
