My name is Jeanne DeFauw. I’m a graphic designer and small business owner living in Colorado with my husband and two young sons. We love exploring the mountains of Colorado, as well as having adventures as often as possible. Travel is a top priority for us!
HopSkipJumpPaper began after my oldest son was born. I was looking for something creative to do during his naps (he was a great sleeper!). I have a background in graphic design, including a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and (too many to count) years working in advertising and corporate marketing.
I’ve dreamt of owning my own business and thought Etsy would be a great place to start. Initially, I created art for children, specifically for nurseries, since I was immersed in the world of babies.
When I was thinking of other art to create, the line “”I Love You From Here To”” stuck out in my mind. It’s something my husband said to me all the time, usually using an obscure location far, far away. It was a sweet saying that I loved to hear. I wondered if others felt the same way. I created a couple of prints and was happily surprised at the immediate response.
After the success of the travel prints, I branched out into greeting cards and sports + travel themed art. In the past year, I’m introduced map art, canvas tote bags and ceramic mugs. My products are perfect for most life events, including: graduations, anniversaries, new babies, housewarmings, and weddings.
I’m very grateful to be able to work for myself and spend time with my family, while creating handmade items that are loved by people all over the world.
