My name is Kristen Buwalda. I am a graphic designer, font nerd, and professional chalk artist. I specialize in chalk art for weddings, events and businesses. You can see my work in a variety of places, most notably at Naked Winery in the Old Mil District of Bend, OR and Dudley's Bookshop and Cafe in downtown Bend. I also do branding, page layout and advertising.

I was born and raised in Arcata, California; a small college town on the Northern Humboldt County coast. I have a degree in Graphic Communication with an emphasis in Design Reproduction Technology and Fine Art from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Currently, I live in Bend, Oregon and work for a local distillery and do chalk art for events like yours!

When we moved to Bend, Oregon in 2010, I fell in love with what many locals refer to as the "We live HERE" mantra — the one that you wake up with every day as you experience beautiful Central Oregon and all of the wonder it has to offer.

My husband and I got married in August of 2013, and after a long relationship with Pinterest, I excitedly dove into designing and DIY-ing my wedding. Not to brag, but my wedding was awesome.

In the throes of wedding-ness, I discovered that I love the details, and while it's difficult to bring all of the details to you, I want to share my chalkboard signs with you!

I am happy and excited to work with you on your special day and am thrilled to work with all types of clients.
