Kirsten is a multidisciplinary artist and sign-painter based in Portland, OR.

With a background in Art History & English, she previously worked for several arts organizations in both educational and curatorial departments. These years of study developed her eye for design, color, understanding of visual forms, and ability to pull from a vast inner library of aesthetic references. 

Kirsten is a graduate of the Los Angeles Trade-Tech Sign Graphics program, the only formal sign-painting training program still offered in the United States - taught continuously since 1924. These two years of study prioritized letterforms, layout & design, and color. To her, sign painting is the act of beautifying our commercial landscape; a way to organize our world and permeate our everyday lives with handmade acts of artistry.
