Kirsten's mixed media works have evolved as a result of many years of playful exploration. Kirsten's nature-full beginnings, blended with her vivid dream world, illuminated her creativity during her earliest years. She quickly found self expression to be an essential thread in this cosmic constellation and has been showing her works since the age of fifteen.
After spending her youth in a variety of art courses, Kirsten went on to study art in college before realizing she would carve her own creative path, combining her knowledge of natural wellness with her love for people and creativity. Kirsten attended graduate school in New Hampshire where she worked as a licensed social worker, incorporating expressive techniques in her work with adolescents, along with those experiencing homelessness and incarceration.
"I see myself as a vessel where life-force is both sourced and expressed. By choosing to channel my energy into the creation of colorful worlds, reminiscent to where we all originated, I am able to connect with the eternal spirit that we all share. Each celestial ocean, each world within a world, is an expression of my most intimate dreams for humanity as a whole. My hope is that each painting reminds us of this one truth - unity. From the froth of an ocean wave to the rainbow of a butterfly wing, or a celestial nebula to a coral reef, we all choose what we see."
