"I’m fascinated by color and texture and I continue to experiment and push past limits, including my own. I invite others to join me, especially in my live art sessions, to see how we can explore the edges.


A native technologist, Kirby experiments with multiple mediums but is drawn to digital methods of creating artwork. Her technology career has spanned from being a Signals Intelligence Analyst and Linguist in the US Army to becoming a small business owner specializing in Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and Cyber Investigations, and her artwork has continued alongside all the while. The variety of technologies and personalities that she has encountered inform and infuse her work, and her personal history often breaks through in subject matter. Kirby currently lives in Cave Creek and helps other artists with technology and social media.
