I am thrilled to kick-off the introduction to this series of collaborators with the talented Mahshed Knight of Paper Ocelot Studios.
Mahshed has quickly become a dear friend over the years and has played an instrumental role in executing my vision going forward. She designed each of the five elemental graphics that adorn the product labels; earth, fire, water, air, and now ether. We actually hashed out the Ether design together, a collaborative effort from the very beginning <3
Mahshed has an incredible work ethic and strong attention to detail that is evident in all of her work. As a fine art calligrapher specializing in bridal suites and custom wedding invites, she delivers a one-of-a-kind tailored experience to anyone that has the pleasure of working with her.
For the Ether Collaboration, Mahshed wrote out the intention that accompanies this collection on beautiful handmade paper:
Ether represents divinity through connection, fortitude, and devotion.
By sharing my lived experiences with others,
I connect to something greater,
Honoring the fortitude and devotion it takes
To keep my precious heart open and soft.
A fine artist at her core, Mahshed draws inspiration from the classics to bring a timeless, yet modern feel to her designs, calligraphy, and wedding stationery. Often reflecting nature with soft tones, organic lines, and subtle textures, Mahshed pairs her natural designs with modern elements and delicate calligraphy for the perfect balance of modern and classic style.
