I come from a background in freelance illustration specializing in pattern design, book covers, children’s books and editorial work. When I started selling my art prints and greeting cards at craft fairs and markets around Vancouver, I found immediate success and knew that this was something I needed to pursue. The joy I felt in sharing my illustrations through thoughtfully designed paper products inspired me to launch Linden Paper Co.

I work with a mentor. For a year and a half, I've paid her and I've done what she suggested, almost... The one thing I wasn't doing was the Morning Routine. My belief was that it was too complicated and would take too much time in my already extremely chaotic over-stressed morning. On a call last week, while everyone else was talking about the morning routing, I admitted that I haven't been doing it at all.

It all started in our kitchens! Like many people, we were creating our own DIY skincare products from ingredients found in our fridge or pantry, such as honey face masks, coconut body butters or moisturizing olive oil blends. These DIY products resonated with us, and many others, because they used ingredients that we can trust. With that sentiment of trust, we focused on formulating skincare products derived from food ingredients that are commonly safe to consume.

My art is my main source of fun, and creating things keeps me sane. Making things helps me to feel accomplished in my day because I was able to bring something to life. My husband is also in the creative industry and it affects the way we see the world around us, the way we notice colour, light, or just the beauty of everyday life and simple things.

As a child I would entertain myself for hours with a box of pencil crayons and a stack of paper. Also throughout my entire life I have never bought a greeting card. I have always illustrated my own hand made cards. That need to be creative has always been a part of me.

Both us have been painting for most of our lives. We often paint together on weekends. One day we were painting watercolour plants and just had an idea of buying some watercolour blank cards and see if people would be interested in buying them. We started it out at a local artisan market and people loved the cards.
