Where urban chick meets art as inspiration.
Look what's arrived at Meeniyan Paper Shop this morning. Papaya! Gorgeous, glittery stationery by Anahata Katkin. Already out of the box, priced up, photographed and on display ready for your viewing pleasure! Maybe you would like to come in to have a bit of a look. I want to take one of everything home with me so you may have to be quick.
Beautiful tins with glittery stickers of all kinds. You can never have too much glitter, right? Use the stickers, then you have the tin for other treasures when you have finished. Also tins of Birthday Bunting, ready to bring out for all the birthdays each year, and keep safe when not needed.
Anahata Katkin is an Oregon-based artist and co-founder of Papaya! Her work is a combination of painting, graphic design and handmade, mixed media pieces. Anahata says “I like the place where pretty and gritty meet. Where flowers, faces and ink run together. I’m inspired endlessly by plants, travel, textiles, folk arts, Asian influences and faces...always faces. I build artwork then I tend to overlay a character or mood that I feel emerges as I go. I believe in working from impulse-to-impulse and not thinking too hard during the process. I make artwork for myself and then take it from there.”
