About Lorent and Leif

Hi, I'm Kristin, a graphic designer with a fine art background. I love working in bright colors and mixing textures to create fun, bold pieces. Being a mom has inspired me to branch-out to a more illustrative style in my design work.

Thank you for liking my Crop-Dot Alphabet series! I love your painting style and soft color schemes... Especially the Ice Cream Social submission. I also really love ice cream so that title sealed the deal. :) Good luck!
