All my life, I have gravitated towards various forms of art and color theory. Even at such a young age, I loved creating with anything I could get my hands on. I am passionate about exploring and learning different mediums, applying the various techniques to whatever inspires me.
Over the past few yeas, I discovered there is something exciting about the marriage of letterpress, art, and design. I have come to enjoy working with this impressively unique and traditional craft, which not only allows access to my work on a broader scale, but also gives me the privilege to be part of the revival in keeping letterpress alive. All these things and preserving intentional letter writing have influenced my desire to create fine art paper goods.
Mishmish is the Armenian word for apricot. The story behind MishMish Paper began years ago when I usually pestered my Armenian Grandfather (1st generation American) to speak to me in Armenian, or teach me particular words. And as you can see, there was one particular word which stuck with me after all this time.
My style is elegant and simple, with a dash of timelessness. I am inspired by organic elements, textures, movement, and the demand of my attention to colors all around us.
Warmest welcome to MishMish Paper,
