My name is Maria
and I love paper. I grew up in a print shop, where gold foil and thick card stock were my colouring sheets, so you could say it made a lot of sense when I picked up a calligraphy pen and started writing.
I was born in Victoria, BC and moved to England and then to Japan until finally I ended up in Winnipeg, where I put my faith in Jesus Christ and married a wonderful man and found two amazing jobs (so you could kinda say Winnipeg has been good to me). I started out working for a local wedding magazine before moving over to the marketing department at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. When my son Elliot was born, I made the move to become a full time mom and part time calligrapher.
