Kirk Chernansky is a graduate of the University of Kansas School of Design. Following graduation, she worked for 15 years in advertising art direction that took her to New York where she honed conceptual and design skills at the School of Visual Arts. In 1995 she made the leap to Social Work, acquiring a Master of Arts Degree from the University of Chicago, and in 2007, began taking courses at Northwestern to obtain a certificate in art therapy Art that bridged the two paths.

Kirk’s artwork reflects a combination of her two careers, using the skills and tools of a commercial artist and visuals that often incorporate writing to enhance a narrative story. Themes reflect a synthesis of opposites that is inspired by her previous work as a Dialectical Behavior Therapist and personal experience of coping with change.
