About Me

Hi there, I’m Kristen, a calligrapher and hand lettering artist based out of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in Hood River, Oregon. I’m a wife, cat mom, lover of mountain hikes, neutral colors, motown music, and a cup of hot tea on cold winter evenings.
I fell in love with calligraphy a year and a half ago while I was in the midst of one of the toughest periods in my professional career as a retail manager. The days seemed endless and with my husband eyeballs deep in his master’s program, I knew I needed something to keep me sane, so when a friend invited me to a calligraphy workshop, although reluctant at first, I decided to give it a go and haven’t looked back since.
The slow, painterly quality of calligraphy provided a peaceful, safe haven for me after long days at work. It allowed me to unplug, reground myself, and get completely lost in something I truly loved! Fast forward a year and a half later and I realized that this is all I wanted to do, so, with a deep breath, I ditched my “big kid job” to pursue my own business in calligraphy.
Today, I enjoy running this one-woman business from my home studio, working with clients and couples to create timeless, handmade art pieces for their weddings, parties, showers and everything in between.
