Paper Love

Welcome to my shop, a celebration of papery (and pin!) love.

I love to make prints, pins, originals and all sorts of art to make people happy and celebrate life.

My story behind the Etsy store goes something like this... My shop started quite awhile ago, I tinkered with some drawings and let it fade as I was busy with other projects, working in publishing full time, drawing at night, and being somewhat torn by the busy nature of full time work vs creative endeavours.

In 2012 I had my baby and a bit more mind space to follow my passion for illustrations. It has been fantastic - in between baby duties I have been flat out, drawing, creating and following my dreams (as cheesey as that sounds, it is true!). I resparked my Etsy store and have been busy doing something I love since, especially creating custom portraits of happy friends and families (although that is on hold at the moment). I'm now flat out with children's book, greeting cards and pin designing.

Today I have a busy studio in Melbourne, Australia and work with clients all over the world. Every day I jump out of bed - doing my dream job, creating work that celebrates people and life in colour and ink on paper.
