Jen Van Overbeeke and Danielle Hyde are the artists behind In Paper Dreams, creators of handmade, papercut greeting cards. Wielding craft knifes and a portfolio of simple, elegant designs, Jen and Danielle have fun with colour and patterns so as to make each card stand alone. They have been working together since January 2013 and first launched their Etsy store in March. All of their designs are original.
Jen majored in Environment and Resource Studies, minored in Peace and Conflict Studies, and has always wanted to be an artist. She crafted her way through undergrad, and is now lucky to share some of her art with the world through In Paper Dreams while exploring her interests in the environment with a small enviornmental non-profit.
Danielle always had a passion for crafting but never envisioned becoing an artist. With a major in Environment and Business, she foresaw a career as a consultant. A large number of her courses steered her towards entrepreneurship and she is thrilled to be building her own business.
