Kirsten Sandlin has been tapped to capture the celebration that is the Cooper Young Festival. Kirsten is a multidisciplinary artist and collector who is as comfortable painting 50 feet in the air from a cherry picker as she is in the workshop repurposing lost antiques. She is passionate about supporting other artists and has served Paint Memphis for years as both a muralist and a board member.
Kirsten has majors in Psychology and Criminology specializing in Forensic Psychology and Death Investigations. She spent some time as a U.S. diplomat in Romania. She is a self-trained artist with an eye for color and international tastes from traveling the globe for over twenty-five years. Kirsten now lives in CY with her family where she owns and operates an art business painting needlepoint canvas.
