 About the Artist Isa Kirk

isa at cheyenne fair oct 13 2012-400Drawing, especially portraits of people and animals, has been one of my passions since early childhood. Born and raised in Germany, I spent endless hours at home, in school, at art classes and later with a variety of personal teachers, improving my skills, if I was not sitting on a horse, that is. Not until I started using colored pastels in my early 30's, I also began to accepted commissions for portraits.


For many years, I was perfecting my art of combining multiple photos of people, animals and landscapes to harmoniously merge in one painting.  My workmanship gradually grew and expanded from producing mere representation of what is visible to the eye to feeling, embracing and magically expressing the very soul of the subjects being portrayed.

Since moving to the Black Hills of South Dakota in 1995, I created several portraits of our horses, especially my favorite Spanish Mustangs. Descendents of the famous war horses of the Spanish Conquistadors, they were treasured by the Native American tribes and made the early pony express rides and cattle drives possible, due to their hardiness and endurance. I simply love this breed for their smooth gates, surefootedness, intelligence and willingness to bond with us humans.

In 2007, I was inspired to reach for another level of skill, in the form of an order for a very different custom portrait - an ascended spiritual teacher. History knows him as the Count de St. Germain, the "Wonder Man" of Europe. No known portraits of him exist from that time. The painting was to portray the Master in his favored robe and colors as well as to include ancient symbols of Earth and Spiritual Growth.

Research, channeled information, as well as my own visions brought forth this first painting for the emerging series of Spiritual Visions. When finished, the 32" x 40", full body portrait had the most surprising effect on the viewers: "I know this man, he looks so familiar", they all said. This, I was told, surprising as it was to me at the time, is the very effect, the Masters of Light seem to have on all of humanity  consciously or not, our souls recognize them as our unconditionally loving guides to Enlightenment.

I love to portrait all living beings, visible and invisible to the human eye, by capturing the very essence of their being. Next to new portraits of animals and people, commissioned from all over the world, I am also working on the next Spiritual Vision. In May 2011, for the first time, I added a painting of bison roaming the hills, called "Spirits of the Hills" to the annual Custer Stampede Buffalo Art Auction. The buffalo art work of a multitude of different style artistsis is exhibited throughout the summer in and in front of businesses in Custer, SD and are auctioned during the September Art Festival (see the calendar of events)

This web site opens a new window and allows for much broader access and up close view into my custom portraits of animals, people, wildlife and the design of Spiritual Visions, all done with pastels. The online gift shop will offer high quality, personally signed, dated and certified Limited Edition Prints of my artwork. Some paintings inspired beautiful cards with seasonal greetings or words of wisdom.
