Petalsuite is a deeper insight into my mind. Born in the United Kingdom, travelling throughout Europe as a military child, growing up in Washington DC, and spending a year in South America; my entire life has exposed me to a wide range of cultures, lifestyles, and emotions.
Professionally, I began working in the Special Events industry at age 20 at a luxury event décor company in Washington DC. There I remained for over three years, progressing from a shift artist to the Art Director and Head of PR for a brand new boutique firm that was built from the previous company. In the Fall of 2014, I transitioned to a prestigious city club in Washington, with a membership of former Presidents, Senators, Nobel Prize winners, authors and professors, where I coordinated Weddings and formal banquets through the Catering department. The following year, I moved to Ontario with my husband and formed Petalsuite as an outlet to cope with the huge life changes I had made. Moving a lot when I was younger took a toll on me that I could never have anticipated. As a grown woman, I struggle now with identity crises, perfectionism and manic depression. Petalsuite is my way of getting my thoughts laid out and organised, so I can learn from my own mind processes and figure out my purpose in life, and what I want my life to be.
Hello there! Welcome to petalsuite, my little corner of the internet. I’m so happy you’re here!
I’m Jo, a twenty-something, creative-life-living, paper-and-fantasy-loving lady with a genuine and honest appreciation for all things beautiful, timeless, elegant, and sophisticated.
Why petalsuite?– First and foremost, I ADORE stationery. I hoarde blank journals and notebooks, always adding to my collection, and I’m obsessed with anything paper- invitations, personalised stationery, journals, envelopes… the list goes on. A stationery suite is a set, or organised collection, or series, of envelopes, stationery, and cards. Petals evoke thoughts of delicate and dainty little things. This is my own collection of pretty little things and thoughts- petalsuite.
I am an artist, sister, cat-lover, wife, yogi-newbie, daughter, maker, friend. My passion is paper and classic, timeless, and elegant details.
