Kirsten Williamson is an Australian artist whose work focuses on hyper-realistic, life sized pencil drawings of cars and motorcycles.

In Williamson’s mind, any car or bike is as individual and as fascinating as its owner: the unique serial numbers, scratches and markings are what makes a particular car belong to someone. The heart of her work is to immortalise those personal histories on to paper; with some life size pieces taking up to 4 months to complete.

"Cars can so clearly represent our heroes, our family, our adventures, art, design, beauty, and possibility; I wouldn't want to try to draw one in anything less than life-like detail.”

Williamson’s portfolio highlights include a life-size Lamborghini Miura S and the James Hunt 1976 F1 Championship Winning Bell Helmet.
