About Kirsten

 

During college Kainz worked in many disciplines of the arts including ceramics, glass blowing, bronze casting, but working with metals stole her heart.

At Southern Illinois University and Curtain University in Western Australia, she completed her BFA specializing in metalsmithing.

Her work in precious metals never quite fit the jewelry scale and once her training in blacksmithing started it was evident that her work would grow in scale. Kainz's work is wild and spirited. Her work is featured in public and private collections all around the Nation and is represented by several galleries.

Kirsten continues to engage with the challenge of creating art while raising her four beautiful girls.
