Hi! I’m Kristen, and I’m a hand letterer and graphic designer in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I started hand lettering just a couple of years ago, and since then, it’s become a passion that I now practice daily. I have a background rooted in graphic design and marketing, and have spent the past 10 years as a freelance designer for various clients in addition to my current role as a Marketing Manager.
