Becoming: Tiffanie Turner

This year we were inspired by Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming, our Book Club book for January, and we decided to focus on learning from women who we find inspiring and can tell us about their journey of “becoming”. You can read the rest of the interviews here. Stay tuned for more each month.

You’ve probably seen the work of paper flower artist, Tiffanie Turner and gawked. Her work is extraordinary. It’s both incredibly life like yet utterly whimsical. I’ve had the fortune to follow Tiffanie’s work from the beginning and every single photo I see is jaw dropping, even now, years later. It’s all paper! We were even fortunate to host the San Francisco artist at a workshop at our studio here in Utah. Tiffanie is the author of The Fine Art of Paper Flowers, a tutorial based book on how to create her stunning masterpieces. She has a show at Eleanor Harwood Gallery called What Befell Us until June 15th. Go see it for yourself!

Becoming: Eva Jorgensen of Sycamore Co

This year we were inspired by Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming, our Book Club book for January, and we decided to focus on learning from women who we find inspiring and can tell us about their journey of “becoming”. You can read the rest of the interviews here. Stay tuned for more each month.

This month I’m pleased to introduce you to creative director, Eva Jorgensen of Sycamore Co. Eva is become of my dearest friends since moving to Utah and she’s one of the very first people I “met” when I started blogging. Wet met in person at the very first Alt Summit in 2010. As we’ve gotten to know each other we’ve learned that we not only share a lot of the same interests, but we’ve led rather parallel lives in a lot of ways (oldest of 4, played tennis in high school, studied art, run our own businesses, want to move to France, and many more). I thought I knew it all, but today she’s sharing even more insight into her world. Her career trajectory has taken quite a turn in the last few years and it’s been so interesting watching from the sidelines as she pivots from running a stationery company to a full fled-fled creative services company and all the fears and then confidence that have resulted from it. I’m thrilled to introduce you to Eva!

This month I’m pleased to introduce you to designer and art director, Erin Jang of Indigo Bunting. You may not have realized it, but you have definitely seen her touch on publications like Martha Stewart (back in the day! I knew every page!), The New York Times, Color Factory and more. Her work is thoughtful and clever, cohesive and highly edited. I look to her work as a pinnacle of taste. On a more personal note, I’ve been lucky to meet her in person and she’s a genuine and kind individual who lifts everyone around her. A true breath of fresh air. I’m so glad to learn more from her today. Take notes, she’s got some great advice!

I’m pleased to introduce you to artist Ann Wood of Woodlucker. Ann’s work has been on my radar for a few years now and somehow she continually manages to outdo herself with every realistic paper creation. She’s focused her exquisite work on lifelike flowers and lately paper food and it’s caught the attention of thousands on Instagram. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that we are all waiting with bated breath for her next reveal. As one who started out making paper flowers, I’m aware that each one takes a lot of time and precision. What could be called “craft” is indeed a work of art.

Becoming: Jordan Ferney

If you’re just joining in, for the month of January we were inspired to change up our content for the month to focus on women who we find inspiring and can tell us about their journey of “becoming” based on our Book Club book of the month by Michelle Obama. We received such a great reaction, we’ll be sharing them as a permanent column. You can read the rest of the interviews here. Stay tuned for many more!

Jordan Ferney is the founder of the delightful party website and shop, Oh Happy Day, and color experience, Color Factory. She was one of the first bloggers to focus on creating beautiful original content on Oh Happy Day and set the bar high both in quality and innovation. I first became familiar with Jordan’s work when I came on board as a contributor in 2011 creating party tutorials and have loved following along on her journey ever since. I’ve grown to admire her dedication to setting high goals and going after them even if they’re super risky. As a non risk-taker, I value seeing that pathway. She’s always been super generous with her business advice both and I’ve been so lucky to be on the receiving end of it. Lately, one of my favorite things to do is to follow her personal Instagram page because she’s super open about showing both her successes and failures. This year she’s shaking things up a bit and she’s sharing some if it with us today.
