Born in Sydney with Polish descent, I’m a self-confessed paper addict, maker of custom calendars and founder of 'The Brown Paper Movement' . The story starts halfway during my studies of Interior Architecture and working as a candle-maker. Candle wax was always delivered crisp, beautifully textured cardboard boxes particularly of the tan coloured variety.
Using this as a new medium to present my projects, the collection of brown paper boxes began. Around March of 2010 and I still hadn't found the right calendar to complement my new aesthetic. Excitedly, I created a simple calendar template and the idea was born. I opened my online store via Etsy in 2014 and continued ever since!

In both life and work, my approach is built on the idea that one’s connection with spaces and products are immensely powerful tools to design life.
