“All my designs are screen printed onto both text weight and cover weight papers.”
“I find much satisfaction in creating a product from start to finish with my hands.”
Walk us through your production/design process.
The process for designing the patterns begins with gathering inspiration for the color palette and style I would like to incorporate into the line. Most of my design work then happens on the computer. Most final pattern designs will take on many forms and iterations until I am happy with them, but that is the most fun part for me! I then get to choose the colors of the papers and inks and then the designs are screen-printed onto both text weight and cover weight papers. All my products are made by hand in my studio. I will then design and create all the packaging as well, which I enjoy very much.
What is the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning?
How happy and grateful I am that I get to go to my studio to make things.
Who or what inspires you to do the work that you do? Why?
The people who inspire me to do the work I am doing are the people who are following their dreams and creating a business and life that they love. Especially with social media outlets like Instagram, you can follow, learn from and be inspired by makers around the globe. Seeing the beautiful things they are creating and hearing their stories of hardships and success inspires me to keep going.
