This feature Friday we thought we’d introduce you to this clever man who has a serious way with words and puns @paradisepapercraft!
MEET PARADISE PAPERCRAFT
I’m English and I’m Canadian, I speak with a clipped accent and a large amount of sarcasm, I read too much, swear too much and I knit too much. I have a passing knowledge of Astrophysics, Middle Egyptian, Landscape design and bread making, I drink tea constantly and leave half drunk cold cups all over my workroom.
My hair is silvering, my beard is gingery and my eyes are green – the rest is subject to change…
All my life I have been a maker, creating things from basic materials give me a tremendous joy and release, I enjoy the challenge that making things provides. If I see something creative that I like, I wonder if I could make it myself, it makes me a terrible customer for other creatives, but it does mean I try lots of new things.
When I was seven I was given a copy of the Tale of the One way Street. It was illustrated by the great Polish papercut artist Jan Pienkowskihas – they so inspired me that I started to copy his and them make my own, thirty odd years later I’m still at it because for years I made my own seasonal greetings cards and sent them to friends and family for a number of years eventually, after stupidly posting them on Facecbook, I started to get orders…
The rest is history.
⠀⠀ Adrian lives in Paradise, Nova Scotia with his partner, two children, two cats, black Labrador, a flock of weird chickens and a one legged Muscovy duck.
I'm so excited to share that I have two workshops coming up this fall!!
1) To celebrate the harvest moon, I'm excited to be bringing back my abstract moon painting workshop on September 24th from 7 to 9 pm! You'll learn how to paint a moon using abstract techniques that can apply to all kinds of painting, and leave the class with two finished moon paintings. $40, all materials provided.
2) I'll be doing another round of Modern Calligraphy for Beginners on Sunday, October 21st from 10 am to 3 pm. This class is great for people who have no calligraphy experience, or who have dabbled in it a little bit but want to refine their skills. $70, all materials included. •
Links to sign up can be found in my profile, and feel free to DM or email me with any questions.
I rarely buy a t-shirt for Lil from the girl section at Target. If I see a shirt I like for E in the boys I grab the same one in her size. Or vice versa even. 💁 I obviously love her in girly things too, but when it comes to t-shirts, idk! I just prefer the boy's shirts. #futureadults#raisethemright#futurecoder

We can't tell you how excited we’ve been about the release of the NEW base shopper bags.🛒
The best part of creating this new range was developing the colour palette. Looking back it took days, no weeks...actually I think it was months to settle on the right colours! 💆🏻♀️ Why? because we are so passionate (it’s ridiculous!!).
Doing something you seriously love makes the long days and the decision making process so worth it!.
And then before you know it, it’s Friday again...happy weekend 🤞🏻 ️️
