Quality Handcrafted Goods

Kris Carlson is the owner/craftswoman behind Pen & Hand. Kris originally hails from the small farming town of Lansing, NY, where she quickly learned an appreciation for hard work and the outdoors. The desire to create has always been a part of her, which led to her to Baltimore, MD to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2007. After four years of intense learning and artistic growth, Kris graduated in 2011 with a BFA in Graphic Design and Studio Concentrations in Book Arts, Printmaking, and Photography.

The knowledge she gained at MICA led to jobs in Graphic Design, Bookbinding and Letterpress, but Kris often felt something was missing. She needed something that allowed her to do it all! That's when she decided to start her own business. Pen & Hand is the outlet where Kris can use all of her skills to create truly unique handmade goods.
