AMARYLLIS PAPERIE IS A DESIGN AND CALLIGRAPHY STUDIO BASED IN NEW JERSEY
DESIGNER, CALLIGRAPHER, THE BOSS
my design journey began at the University of Texas in Austin (my hometown – hook ‘em horns!). while completing my bachelor’s degree in textiles and apparel design, i worked part time at paper place, a stationery boutique with a 40 year history! I loved learning about both crafts side by side. I moved to NYC in 2014 and got my dream job in the fashion industry. I was a women’s designer at Ralph Lauren for five years, during which time I learned calligraphy and opened my tiny business on the side. I got married in 2018, and after we had our first child at the end of 2019, I decided to make amaryllis paperie my full time job. it’s a family affair – my husband James does the web design and financial planning, my boston terrier Bug keeps me company in my office, and our son AJ sticks to his nap schedule to keep productivity high!
AJ + BUG, BABY AND BOSTON TERRIER
AJ is a baby. he loves his stuffed worm toy, looking at himself in the mirror and petting Bug. Bug is a boston terrier. she loves finding a sunny spot to sleep all day, piling all her toys at your feet until you throw them and taking up the entire couch. rest assured, neither AJ nor Bug will be doing any of your design work. but they do a great job providing moral support behind the scenes.
