Next week at the V&A: designer Kirsty Stevens will discuss how her MS diagnosis inspires her unique designs

Through her extraordinary arts company Charcot, Kirsty Stevens from Cupar takes the daunting and clinical and transforms it into high-end, powerful design patterns.

The artist uses her own MRI scans of harmful brain lesions as a multiple sclerosis patient to create a series of beautiful patterns.

Stevens, who was diagnosed with the condition at 21, hopes that showcasing her scans through art will spread awareness of MS, which is mostly an unseen illness.

Kirsty Stevens will be at the V&A as part of this year’s Dundee Women’s Festival to discuss her medical and artistic journey. It’s an inspirational talk you don’t want to miss.


Sunday, March 3 from 14:00-16:00.
