We know life is messy and unpredictable, but moments with loved ones are perfect just as they are. We cherish our families and create meaningful memories to be savored for a lifetime. We deeply understand the desire to strive to capture and foster the happy, beautiful, and positive moments in life. We do this because we understand out of all the million moments the ones we treasure and hold on to are those that make us smile, inspire us, give us wisdom, and joy.
Le Papier Studio is a boutique lifestyle brand that manifests the sensibilities and personal style of its Founder and Creative Director, Vana Chupp. The brand inspires women to keep memories close and cherish the magic of special moments forever. We utilize client's favorite photographs to illustrate the people, pets, and special moments in their life. From those treasured pictures, we create one-of-a-kind heirloom pieces: silhouette portraits and exquisite jewelry, and perfectly personal accessories.
Le Papier Studio was established in 2008 in an effort to satisfy Vana's creative passions while fulfilling an even higher calling, being a mom. Vana continues to be the safe keeper of a family's memory and works with clients personally on each order to help evoke the magic of that moment forever.
Inspired by the sweet and simple moments in life, Vana is professionally trained as an architect with an artist's heart. Her silhouette craft was first born as she began documenting the personality, emotion, and playfulness of her son Nikolas. Over the years she has established herself as a leading, honest, authentic voice on women in business, the balance of work and family, and how to foster creativity in everyday life. Now, as a mama to two busy boys, wife to her college sweetheart and owner of a labor-of-love brand, she strives to make a difference in her clients' lives. Her favorite stories to hear from customers are that they will treasure their silhouette jewelry as it reminds them of their loved ones when they were little, a memory their will forever keep close to heart (literally!).
On her Blog, she shares about balancing a business and motherhood, documents her creative process, and works to inspire and aid other women in business. As she does with Le Papier Studio, she focuses her writing on the happy, beautiful, and positive moments of business and motherhood, creating a lasting collection of her inspirations, wisdom, and joy.
Her first book, Silhouette Art, featuring instructions, papers and patterns for making modern silhouette heirlooms was published and released by Chronicle Books in 2010. Pretty Paper Parties - a must have for crafty types, helps customize a party with papers, templates, and endless inspiration was published and released by Chronicle Books in 2012.
