After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Kris worked as an ad agency art director for a dozen years before venturing off on her own. She started a company called GoWear, combining her design talents with a newfound passion for skydiving to develop a line of skydiving-themed apparel sold at dropzones around the world. (Kris has made more than 3500 jumps.)
A life-long love of pattern, color and interior design eventually lead her to surface design. She finds inspiration in Scandinavian modern style and uses bold colors and lively linework to create products that are sophisticated, energetic and contemporary.
