Welcome to Girl Friday Paper Arts, I’m Lotus­— the designer, printer, packager & shipper, email answerer, social media consultant, customer service rep, and coffee getter/drinker.

I’m on a perpetual search for great quotes, inspirational images, beautiful typography, and interesting new ways to combine all three.

I’ve always loved the written word, and I even studied journalism for a while. Eventually, I was drawn to graphic design because of its unique quality of visual storytelling. I was drawn to Etsy because if its unique quality of helping me to connect with people worldwide.

I graduated from Art Center College of Design (in Pasadena, CA), and pursued a career as an Art Director at several LA based ad agencies, working mainly on movie poster concepting and design.

In 2007, I bought myself a turn of the century letterpress (roughly the size of my car), and founded City Girl Letterpress. I spent the next few years designing and printing custom letterpress wedding invitations and stationery.

I now spend my time perfecting my greek salad recipe, attempting to learn French with my kids, planning exotic future vacations on Pinterest, meditating on world peace (no, seriously!), and working on my Etsy shop.

I’m endlessly inspired by the beauty of simplicity. I love to put together meaningful words and gorgeous type, and then just get out of the way and let the magic happen.

Look for some exciting new product lines coming soon, including a modern baby nursery section, and a zen meditation & yoga series.

Convo me anytime, and don’t forget to join my social media party on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Tumblr.
