About the Instructor: 

I'm Mel, the colorful heart behind this God-given gem, Mauve Paper Co. You can find me creating hand lettered and illustrated paper goods to capture life's magical moments in minimal art form. If I am not creating, I am loving on my husband and chasing my children around, more than likely grabbing my art supplies out of their little hands. I enjoy sharing my craft with people who enjoy art in every aspect of life from the stationery they send to their friends to what they hang in their office or creative space.
