Since attending graduate school, Kirsten has been incorporating expressive techniques in her time with adolescents and families, 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, I hope to remind us of what forever connects us. Each celestial ocean, each world within a world, is an expression of my most intimate dreams for humanity. 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."
