Kristen Ley

JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI

Kristen Ley was determined to find a letterpress. So she met with T.J. Ray of the AG Museum Print Shop, who connected her to Ed Inman, a notable letterpress artist, to learn all about the craft. She eventually tracked down a 1925 Chandler + Price Platen Press in Kentucky, and drove it back to Mississippi (all 900 pounds!).So it's no surprise when Kristen tells us she loves to challenge herself as an artist, designer and thinker. She lives by the words "be kind and work hard," but also understands the importance of balance. How do we know? She loves a good rainy Saturday because it means she can finally sleep in.

STATE FLOWER PRINT

While traveling through the flowered highways near Austin, Kristen Ley saw the quote: "Where flowers bloom so does hope." Lady Bird Johnson was the woman behind the words and, as First Lady, she started a beautification project in Washington D.C. by planting millions of flowers. And, with every Thimblepress State Flower Print, you"ll receive a bonus pouch of wildflower seeds.
