She is best known for using various muted desert hues and incorporating a wide variety of drawing materials in her abstract work, giving it a “fresh,” expressive, and gestural feeling.
Her work is currently on display at Ashton Gallery in San Diego, CA. Kristen’s abstracts have been selected and featured on the homepage of online galleries Saatchi, Artfinder, and Zatista as well as selected and featured in newsletters as part of various Editor/Staff Pick highlights, including "Ones to Watch 2020" on Artfinder.
