She holds a Bachelor of Contemporary Arts from Edith Cowan University and a Graduate Diploma of Education from The University of Western Australia.
Kirsten has taught art to hundreds of students in her role as a secondary school art teacher. One of her happiest places is being in the studio with students, teaching them different artistic mediums and sharing with them in the joy of creative making.
