Kirsten Groff received a B.F.A in Painting with minors in Art History and Printmaking from the Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, GA in 2018. She has shown her work in group exhibitions internationally including galleries in Savannah, GA and Lacoste, France. Groff studied abroad in Lacoste, France in the fall of 2016. Her work has been shown at the Non Fiction Gallery and the Gutstein Gallery in Savannah, GA. She is currently exhibiting work at the Blu Rose Gallery in Atlanta, GA.  Groff uses her work to explore theories of perception and reality. By exploring these themes through visuals, she is able to better develop a sense of warped perspectives and manifest that into her work. Groff currently lives and works in Savannah, Georgia.
