I make art to connect with myself and the world. As a modern folk artist, I focus on building community and promoting joy. Above all, I seek to make art that is meaningful to everyday people: colorful, playful, vibrant and direct.
A fiber artist, Kirsten Ervin created collaborative tapestries during artist residencies at the Carrick Library/Project Art and The Children's Museum of Pittsburgh.
Kirsten also creates large scale community portrait projects: Portraits of Penn in East Liberty and the Passenger Portrait Project at the Pittsburgh International Airport.
Kirsten coordinates The Pittsburgh Women in the Arts Meetup in partnership with the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council.
