Kirsty received her Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts, with a major in painting, from the Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town. She then endeavoured to combine her artistic skills with those of the business world, completing a Postgraduate Diploma in Enterprise Management at the University of Cape Town in 2009.
