Kirsten’s participation in national and international figurative ceramics exhibitions, include the Harn Museum’s “Alchemy, from Dust to Form: Contemporary Figurative Ceramics” and Barton College of Art’s “Contemporary Figurative Ceramics Invitational.”  In 2013, she had a dual exhibition at the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art and was part of the Emerging Artists Exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon, Georgia in 2014.  In 2015, Kirsten was selected in MOCA GA’s exhibition of contemporary Georgia artists entitled, “Gathered.”  In addition to participating in international exhibitions such as SOFA, Aqua: Art Miami, Art Palm Beach and Art Manila, Kirsten co-curated “Taboo: Sexuality and Sexual Identity in Ceramics” in 2015.  She is part of the permanent collections of the Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences, the Kapp Foundation, and Cafesjian Foundation.

"Storytelling connects us to one another and explains who we are. In an age in which the individual is often alienated, my work attempts to cut through the isolation by presenting common threads of the human experience. Early in my career, a fine arts degree in theater refined my understanding of imagery and taught me to use gestures as powerful expressive tools. However, it is through figurative ceramics that I am able to fully realize my narrative impulse. While each piece is instantly approachable, closer inspection reveals a world in which the story and inner psyche of the character slowly emerges. The ultimate goal of my work is to create honest depictions of the human quest toward self-revelation and a contemporary identity. Just as we look to our past as a springboard toward a personal vision of the future, I combine found objects and discarded elements from the past with my ceramic work. The mixed media not only creates an intriguing dialogue of materials but also informs the viewer of the scope of the figure’s journey within each narrative."
