hi, i'm alex :)
Soul Paper started from my passion and love of creativity and art. If I could do one thing for the rest of my life it would be exactly this. I hope I can help inspire your creativity & also that you can find a piece or two in my shop for a special place in your home.
I aim for simple, clean, contemporary and eye-catching illustrations. I aim to create art that is fluid and alive. But most importantly I aim to create art that has soul.
Meraki is a Greek word that means to do something with soul, creativity, or love. It is when you leave a piece of yourself in your work. There is no better word to describe exactly what I do or why I do it.
My life forever changed after I left my day job and bought a one-way ticket across the world. This turning point led to a year and a half, 7 different countries, and countless memories that I would not trade for anything in the world. I made a promise that when I returned home I would take my dreams seriously and pursue what I have a burning passion for. As with all matters of the heart you know when you find it, and I found it. :) I am taking this little dream of mine and running with it.
I hope that you can see the love that goes behind each piece that I make. I feel very blessed to be able to share things made with my hands and my heart. Stay creative and curious about this big and beautiful world.
