Meet Kristy Neufeld
A graduate of Chico State, Kristy Neufeld has always been passionate about chalk + traveling, hence her business name “Chalk Gypsy.”
Tell us about your business.
Chalk Gypsy has been creating custom handmade projects since 2010, but only recently was Kristy able to build her own business in order to pursue her passion full time: creating eco-friendly custom chalkboards, signs, invitations & various other handwritten goods.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the wide variety of projects I get to create (it’s always fun making someone’s unique vision come to life!) & the amazing clients I get to meet along the way. Making my own schedule has also been the greatest challenge and incredible reward, since starting my own business.
What do you like to do for leisure?
Passionate about music, health, fitness, & nature. My dog (Winnie) & I live near Bidwell Park so we can go for long walks/runs every single morning!
What songs do you listen to or what things do you do to get your creative juices flowing?
I love having my record player on while I work on projects. Current favorites records are “Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats,” “Bob Marley,” “Johnny Cash,” and “Dinah Washington.”
