St. Louis resident Kris Gentemann spent 12 years painting personalized items for a local gift shop before deciding to go into business for herself. She nows works at home (with her little white dog and little brown dog to keep her company) making beautifully unique gifts that she sells to three local businesses and to the public via her newly launched website. Her business, Little White Dog Studio, offers everything from piggy banks to rocking chairs, all personalized for the recipient.
Kris uses a variety of our products to create her pieces. “I’ve been using Decocolor markers for about 13 years. The Decocolor pens have such brilliant color, and they do not fade,” she says. In the past year, Kris has began to use Zig Painty Markers as well. In her opinion, “the Zig come in just amazing colors, and I like the very hard, good point on the fine Zig pens… very good for names and words.” For extremely fine detail, Kris’s pen of choice is the Sakura Identipen.
