Kirsty trained as a Graphic Designer and worked for a printing company. After eight years and tired of designing nothing more than business cards and letterheads, she moved to the Admissions department at the University of Bradford. During this time Kirsty discovered microstock after her partner gave her a digital camera.

The microstock addiction kicked in, and she started selling illustrations alongside her photos. In 2005 she was doing well enough to go full time and has since built the reputation as the most successful illustrator in the microstock market.

    I would like to see if I could get image permission for a DNA photo that is copyrighted by Kirsty Pargeter. The image would be used for a National Science Foundation PowerPoint presentation. If you could please provide me the info, I would be grateful. Thanks, Nataly.
