March 10, 2021
Kirsten (Wilhelm) Matkin has been drawing since she was in eighth grade. At that time, she did mostly pencil drawings but branched into working with other mediums such as ink and paint when she was in high school.
After graduating from Chinook High School in 2009, Kirsten decided to attend Montana State University-Northern to earn a degree in Graphic Design. On that degree path, she took several courses in fine arts: oil painting, acrylics, illustration, and watercolor. While working on her bachelor's degree, she earned her missus on November 12, 2012 when she married Lee Matkin.
