Kristen is a resident of Bend, Oregon since 2010, when she relocated here with her now-husband. She has always drawn and produced art from a young age, and her passion has always been pen and ink. Lettering was a natural transition with her background in design, and her love of fonts.
She produced chalkboards for her own wedding in 2013 and was convinced by her caterer to go into business with her lettering. Now, she produces work for many local businesses, as well as weddings and private events. Her lettering work is most visible around Bend at Wild Oregon Foods, Wild Roots Coffeehouse, Va Piano Vineyards, Seventh Mountain Resort on the way up to Mount Bachelor — she painted their rafting bus in the summer of 2018! — and Anjou Spa, Pastini, Bonta Gelato, Crater Lake Spirits Tasting Room and Dudley’s Bookshop and Cafe.
Her work is inspired by people around her, things she sees, and her imagination. She is a graphic designer, font nerd, and professional chalk artist. She specializes in chalk art for weddings, events and businesses, and brand design, page layout and ad design.
