Kirsten Reed

Teton Group

Kirsten is not an artist. She is an interpreter. Observing the nuances and emotions of life and translating them with paint on to canvas.
When she was a little girl, Kirsten was in love with art. She found the smell of a new box of crayons intoxicating and loved getting her hands wet with finger paints!
Her favorite memories were coloring, painting and pressing beautiful flowers in books.
After spending many years writing professionally about and for other people, Kirsten felt a nagging emptiness and a need to create once again. There was more she wanted to do creatively and she decided to branch out with a blog – Keystrokes and Kaleidoscopes – to marry her love of words with her colorful need to create.
Suffering a personal loss with the death of their 2-year-old daughter, she began healing by finding unexpected beauty in everyday life. She is intrigued by the simple beauty of life around her. Hope, love, faith and goodness are recurrent themes in her works. The bulk tends to be perfectly imperfect, creating many of her pieces with a palette knife adding organic layers of interest and texture. She tries to feel her pieces as she paints them, creating an emotive scene or snapshot that evokes souls to stir and feel.
Whether it’s through an abstract angel, a lone barn or a cheerful bouquet of flowers, she loves to capture hope and beauty in our often dark and broken world.
Many of her pieces are purposefully happy and encouraging as she believes in brightening the world by spreading joy. She invites you to join her by exploring the colorful swirls in her art and capture some of the magical kaleidoscope we get to call “life”.
