Let me introduce myself.

My name is Kristine.

As a brand storyteller, I help entrepreneurs and small business owners craft and polish a uniquely compelling brand voice and content that resonates. As a letter artist, I create modern brush calligraphy and hand lettering designs for both business and personal use.
