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. You can read the rest of the interviews here. Stay tuned for many more!
Today we’re featuring Cat Seto, our featured Book Club artist of the month (you can download her printable poster and bookmark here!). I’ve been a big fan of Cat’s work for quite awhile ever since my good friend, Eva Jorgensen of Sycamore and Co. first introduced me to her work. Cat is a San Francisco-based artist, author and founder / creative director of Ferme à Papier. The collection was inspired when she visited Paris for the first time and was overtaken by the intimate architecture, chic Parisians donning plaid, and visits to bio-dynamic farms in the countryside.Upon returning from the trip, she found herself obsessively drawing images, which would result in the Paris-meets-Brooklyn, eco-friendly Ferme collection. The stationery line has since been featured by The New York Times, Vogue, In Style, Elle Décor, Real Simple, Lonny, Design Sponge, and Refinery 29; and is now found in more than five hundred stores, museum shops, and bookstores in the U.S. and internationally. Her books include Impressions of Paris and Mom, Inc. (published by Chronicle Books). Her custom work includes collaborations with a number of large retailers. Cat holds a BFA in painting and MFA in fiction/creative writing from the University of Michigan and was included in the first Best of American Voices anthology. Her fiction has also appeared in journals such as Glimmer Train, Triquarterly, Michigan Quarterly Review, and Nimrod. To see more about Cat’s custom and collaboration work please click here.
