She has held residencies at the Banff Art Centre, MacDowell Colony, Recology SF, Oxbow, and Vermont Studio Center. Her work is in the collections of the The Broad Foundation, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Recology SF, and the Los Angeles Contemporary Archive. Kristin is currently developing an art residency in Ojo Caliente that will encourage visitors to integrate land stewardship, local collaborations, and food cultivation with their creative practices.
