I grew up loving paper, antiques and pretty things. I love paper because it carries ideas. Ideas about anything and everything shared through pictures or words or, in the best case scenario, both. Antiques because they hold stories. Without uttering a single word they talk of different times and different ways of thinking. And pretty things because I believe life is lived in the details. Surrounding yourself with things that appeal to your senses seems to be the easiest way to bring joy into your everyday life.
After spending fourteen years as a graphic designer, I was finally able to unite all of these loves in one place: the letterpress print shop. In the shop, I'm able to give purpose to antique machinery and put ideas on paper as a way to bring joy to all kinds of people for all kinds of reasons. At least that's the hope with every single piece.
