Instructor:
Kristen De Palma

Kristen De Palma started hand lettering for fun just a couple of years ago, and since then, it’s become a passion that she now practices daily. She has a background rooted in graphic design and marketing and has spent the past 10 years as a freelance designer for various clients in addition to her current role as a Marketing Manager. Kristen spends most of her time being sarcastic and rolling her eyes, and waiting to hear or dream up the next quote that inspires her to open up her sketchbook. You can find some of Kristen's work for sale at Inkwell Boutique, and inside Argyle Fine Art Gallery and Kitchen Door Catering in Halifax, as well as on her Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/kdpletters). She also shares all her latest work regularly on her Instagram account under @kdpletters.
