About

Designers of stationery and fine silk.

Lines & Squares is a once little, ever evolving daydream that first came to life in 2010. I have so many fond memories of making as a child. Whether it was sitting in Granny’s garden, painting masterpieces on her pavement with a bucket of water and a brush in hand, or presenting my Gran with ornaments we constructed out of lumps of clay from the dam; I was always up for the chance to create. My love of paper started at around age 8 and my first business venture followed shortly after. My cousin and I set up Leap Frog Designs from our grandparent's dining room table one school holidays and sold stamped greeting cards (complete with a frog logo on the back that was heat embossed over the toaster) to any neighbour that had twenty cents to spare. While I can thank my family for fostering that creativity from a very young age, my working life started a long way from design. While I continued to study, create and learn along the way, I was sure I had found my forever job in Children’s Services, dabbling in ESL in the latter years. Seven years later, at 23, I created Lines & Squares as a little something fun to fuel my creativity alongside my ‘real’ job. Unbeknown to me at the time, life had other plans. Health eventually forced me to resign from my five-year position, which allowed me to give Lines & Squares a little extra love and devotion. Now, almost another seven years on, here we are! Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisaged the bundle of joy we’ve created, but I’m ever so thankful we have!

Our name is by far one of the most frequently asked questions. If you were to ask my friends, they would probably rattle off a tale about my pedantic ways. I was the child at school who would rewrite my homework five times over, not to check my answers, but to ensure it was neat and tidy, lined up and square. If you were to ask my family, they’d tell you that Lines & Squares is an A.A. Milne poem from ‘When We Were Very Young’. Back in 1936, my grandmother was awarded a copy of the book for a piece of poetry she had written in grade five. Along with a copy of ‘Now We Are Six’, the book has been passed down through the family. One of my favourite childhood memories is of digging those books out of Granny’s bottom drawer and listening to her read them from the foot of the bed when I stayed with her. My Dad’s name is inscribed on the inside cover, the pages are stained and torn; it’s easy to see the amount of love they’ve been shown over the years. Both books now take pride of place in my studio, to me, are another reminder to keep ticking all of my boxes and walking in all of the squares.
