Hey, I'm Jess!

I am the creator and owner of Jess' Paper Co. I turn my digital illustrations into a variety of stationery items or your everyday boho, desert vibin', plant lover. On my website you will find everything from vinyl stickers, to home decor, to gifts and office tools.

I am a hard core fan of a big cup of coffee, road tripping with no plan, my 54 house plants, the coziness of fall, and of course, dogs. These passions of mine often reflect in my work and are a source of my inspiration.

The last few years...

I grew up in Barrie, Ontario. I always knew I wanted to be an artist, the only reason I actually ever wanted to go to school is to go to art class which I always found myself staying behind to clean the paint brushes after class just to spend more time in the 'art room".

When I was 18, I moved to Vancouver to study Therapeutic Recreation at Douglas College.

Living on the west coast made me fall in love with mountain adventures, the city art scene, and all the new opportunities this is when my business came to life.

In the spring of 2019, I was starting my second year of college and opened up a little Etsy shop. At this time, my business was on the side. Once I graduated I realized that I wanted to pursue art full time and go in my own direction, business picked up and I took the leap in to a "full time small business owner" and my life changed.

#Vanlife was a dream

After got married to my best friend, we decided to sell everything, spend 6 months converting a sprinter van in to our dream home on wheels, then we moved in full time! This was the peak of covid times, the world shut down and we "quarantined" in our 40 square ft van touring around Canada. It was a dream really.

A year later I found myself struggling to operate my business out of our small living space and we found an apartment in Calgary, Alberta. One of our favourite places to visit in the van so why not make it a reality... and here we are!

You can catch me sipping on my iced coffee, curled up in my macrame hanging chair, drawing my next collection, and dreaming up new products and collections to share with you!

Thank you so much for stopping by

xx, Jess
