My name is Kjerstine, and I'm the owner and designer behind Twin Oaks Marketplace. I'm a fifth generation Oregonian, born and raised in the Willamette Valley. I attended Oregon State University where I received my degree in Interior Design. My now husband and I met in college, have been married almost 13 years, and have four kids aged 10 and under. They definitely keep us busy, but they are definitely fun! We are now located in a small farming community outside Portland.
After leaving my corporate interior design job after our first daughter was born, I was craving a creative outlet. It started as a growth chart to give as a gift. And then another. And soon people started asking for custom signs.
One thing led to another, and Twin Oaks Marketplace became a business. I enjoy being my own boss and creating home decor pieces.
