Hola!

I’m Kristin, the founder and calligrapher behind Little Road Calligraphy. I live in San Diego with my husband and share time between here and LA. I fell in love with California after moving from Vancouver BC to Santa Barbara and never looked back. 

I come from a family of artists ranging from painters, animators and producers, creativity has always come naturally and something I view as a gift. My background in fashion design gave me the love I have for collaboration, design details and creating beautiful things. I bring this same passion to my collaborations with my brides and clients. 

My work is classic, elegant and spontaneous at the same time. I was drawn to calligraphy after doodling in a journal, when I noticed myself practicing in my spare time I wondered if I could turn my passion into something more, a career I love! Little Road came to me after listening to a Feist song, on a drive back to San Diego from LA. I knew then that the idea of taking a different path, trying something new and challenging was the right choice. 

I believe that magic is in the details, adding special touches through art and design to make your event even more special and unique. When Little Road Calligraphy was founded, I wanted to create a business that was my own, to embrace my individual creativity and create a life I loved. I believe this high vibration energy shines through in my work and embraces the clients I work with.

Little Road Calligraphy goes beyond invitations and suites, offering custom art and sketches in watercolor, ink and charcoal. I love finding ways to reflect the individuality of my clients that I collaborate with and see where the path takes us.
