Kirsty Elson is a multimedia artist whose work is loved by nearly 40,000 people just on Instagram. She creates wooden miniatures of beach houses and various fish and marine life in her unique style which is whimsical and a bit surreal.
As she creates her sculptures, Elson uses recycled materials such as pieces of wood, rusted nails, bottle caps, etc. “The great thing about driftwood is that each piece is very different,” she told Studio Wallop in an interview. “I tend to let the materials lead me, rather than having an idea in my head and trying to find a piece to fit my idea… I let the materials do the work really.” Though this sounds pretty modest, we’re sure that her talent and hard work have a big role in the creation of her art.
