Whatever YOU can imagine — or even what has not been imagined yet — Kristen can create. Combining metal art, and LED light, and even flame effects, she produces beauty, wonder, and inspiration.
Using various recycled metals, a plasma cutter and welding designs Kristen molds these pieces into beautiful works of art. Through grinding techniques, colored dyes and patinas, and powdercoated finishes Kristen brings a new and beautiful life to a discarded piece of recycled metal.
Every piece of art — whether eclectic metal wall art, color changing LED art, a majestic metal sculpture, or alluring fire pit — tells a story. And when you combine all of Kristen's treasured pieces of art, they tell her story.
Please check out Kristen's artist statement, her biography and her process of creating the work.
From the polished exterior, rich colors and patinas, to the dynamic personality, and subtle details,… to the brilliance, the unmistakable contrasts, and the magical shadows of light I am channel for a universal source. My life's purpose is to create beauty and inspiration.. This is me — this is Kristen Hoard. A creative thinker, a designer, a sculptor, an artist, a magician of metal, light, and fire.
From humble beginnings, to designing an elaborate fire pit for the famous Las Vegas duo of Siegfried and Roy, Kristen Hoard's passion and talent surrounding metal sculpting has reached a pinnacle of metal art design.. And yet she's just getting started.
Kristen's uses her favorite tool… the plasma cutter to create these designs… putting them altogether with the welder and then adding color with patinas and dyes and resn. Sometimes combining clay, enamel, copper, steel, and aluminum… really anything in her shop she lets the muse take her on a journey for each piece.
"We had a space in our home that needed a strong vertical presence and had a lot of space to fill. Kristen saw the space and created a variation of her 'River of Possibilities' that not only fit the bill but she transcended the original work in multiple dimensions (see the video on YouTube) and created a work that amazes all who see it and keeps us captivated on many an evening."

"Art Consulting Services has commissioned Kristen Hoard several times to create various commissioned pieces for our clients. She has always worked extremely hard to collaborate with our vision and the client's needs, and has added value with her expertise, artistry and thoughtful questions as the commission process unfolded. We have been delighted with every piece she has created for us and also enjoy watching her personal body of work change and evolve as well!"

"Working with Kristen Hoard has been a true pleasure. I love art and I have passionate ideas. But when I decided I wanted original artwork as the focus of my bathroom remodel, I could only get as far as knowing the feeling that I wanted but not how to execute it. I have several small pieces of Kristen's in my home and garden and I knew I loved her use of color and metal and fire. Kristen really listened to me and brought my elementary ideas to amazing fruition. She turned my small bathroom into an absolute spa. Her designs are amazing. And she saw everything through flawlessly from the beginning designs to complete installation. And the only surprises were how beautiful everything came out – no shocks about budget or missed deadlines".

I recently ordered two pieces of 'metal art work' from Kristen's website. The service I received was absolutely first class. Kristen is a talented artist who listens to her clients and delivers exactly what is required. I am truly delighted with my art work, the detail, colouring and overall 'look and finish' is exceptional. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family. I love both pieces, and will be ordering again, for sure. Kristenhoard.com is a professional organisation, offering excellent quality and bespoke items at great value for money.
Thank you very much indeed!
