"Enthusiastically bright colors mix with technology in my art. Ever changing but with a clean pop-art aesthetic, my art explores and reaches out to find place with a bold personality.
An enthusiastic technologist, Kirby experiments with multiple mediums but is drawn to digital methods of creating artwork, including art created using Artificial Intelligence and 3D modelling. 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 Tucson and helps other artists with technology and social media.
Kirby is the founder of Plessas Experts Network, a company that consults and trains for online (cyber) investigations. She is a member of the Sonoran Art League and shows at The Finer Arts Gallery and can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/KirbyPlessasFineArt and on Instagram at www.instagram.com/kirbyplessasart/.
Kirby also uses her deep technical knowledge to help others in art marketing specializing in social media. Check out her website and podcast: Curious Kirby, featuring social media advice and interviews.
