Kirsten Kainz lives and works in Montana. She has works available for sale and does commission work for public and private collections.
During college Kirsten worked in many disciplines of the arts including ceramics, glass blowing, bronze casting, but working with metals stole her heart and has lead her to creating monumental works.
She completed her BFA specializing in metal smithing, at Southern Illinois University and Curtain University in Western Australia.
Her work in precious metals never quite fit the jewelry scale and once her training in the techniques of ornamental blacksmithing started it was evident that her work would grow in scale. Her award winning paintings and sculptures are featured in public and private collections all around the nation. She is represented by several national galleries and represents herself locally in Montana.
