"I’m interested in exploring my past experiences through the lens of abstract art. From my military and intelligence career, to owning my own business as a veteran and a woman, to having lived in and traveled to such a variety of locations, from Montana to DC to Kuwait. My intent is to be bold but detailed and to give everyone a different idea of what the artwork is or can mean for them."
Kirby Plessas is a multi-media artist living in Cave Creek, Arizona. She is a veteran of the US Army, where she served as an Arabic linguist and analyst, as well as the Intelligence Community in Washington, DC. She is the founder of Plessas Experts Network, a company that consults and trains for online (cyber) investigations.
Kirby started producing artwork as a child and continued to do so through the years but has recently become more serious about her passion for art. Her styles range from abstract acrylics and resin artwork to using those abstracts in digital concoctions. She’s currently exploring using her abstract paintings in everyday objects.
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.
