Kirsten produces watercolor images drawn from scripture, often including the original Hebrew or Greek. Her beautiful calligraphy and imaginative illustrations never fail to draw one in. She paints images of the Bible that translate the abstract into the tangible. From her artist statement:
The configurations of repeated shapes reflect the influence of several indigenous art forms. The daughter of Presbyterian missionaries, I grew up in the Phillipines and was exposed to the decorative use of patterns on Filipino and other Southeast Asian fabrics, basketry and brass. Geometeric woolen tapestries of my Scandinavian heritage have also affected my sense of design, as have Native American weaving, Hmong reverse applique, traditional quilts and Byzantine mosaics.
