Kari is the founder of The Paper Lab. She combines self-taught techniques and graphic design tools to create invitations & greeting cards and specializes in various styles of calligraphy for custom invitations, envelope addressing and event signage. She currently donates her time to fun paper projects as she finds this creative outlet therapeutic in her hectic life. Kari studied Biology, Chemistry and Japanese Art & Language at the University of Oregon and Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan. She also has a Master's degree from The George Washington University in Forensic Molecular Biology. When she's not at the crime lab or messing with a paper project, she enjoys spending time with her boys --her husband, three children and a naughty, black pug named Keola.
