Kristen Kieckhaefer (pronounced KEY-kay-fur) is a Milwaukee-based creator who specializes in crafting custom live art-making performances for a variety of events. Kristen pivoted into the entertainment industry after 7 years as an art teacher. During that time span, she taught every age, from elementary to high school, and offered classes including AP Art History, Painting, Drawing, and Special Education Arts (see her full class list and work history here). As a live artist, Kristen often receives the question: “Doesn’t it make you nervous with people watching you make art?” The answer? Not really.
