People & Interviews

Interviews with artists, authors and #PeopleOfPaperblanks.

Even though I spend much time working on the internet my passions are very much old-world! I'm fascinated with the Victorian and Edwardian eras and collect antique photographs.
"I’m the author of the Haanta Series: an ongoing, online romantic fantasy series recently published by Red Willow Press. I do have other pursuits, such as singing and being a perpetual reader of classics, but my true passion lies in writing."
"My favourite Paperblanks book is the Back Pocket Mini from the Pocket Companions Collection. I like the rugged look of the cover. Also, I like the round corner format. It fits easily in my back pocket."
"I think people have really wandered away from the art of writing and journaling. Everything is so utilitarian and functional these days and people take little care to spend a little more time or money on beauty."
"I just love the Ougi design from our Japanese Lacquer Boxes Collection. It is so beautiful! I really admire the artist’s attention to detail as well as the beautiful colours."
"Most of my life I have been an artist and designer although I have a degree in liberal arts, not fine arts, and actually did little training for what I ended up doing for a living."
"I’m an Italian writer and painter born in Rome, where I’ve lived my entire life. As a writer, my fascination lies with historical novels and my paintings are inspired by myths, legends and dreams."
"The mysterious aspects of a single person fascinate me and portraiture – the study of faces - is what I specialize in to try to understand how emotions are expressed."
"I grew up amidst fields and forests in a small village in Austria. Our neighbor was an 80-year old German writer, war veteran and well-travelled wise man and as a child I became intrigued by his stories about the world outside of my small village."
"I was born in East-Berlin and 8 years old when the wall came down. Stepping into a new world I had only heard of, it was a truly overwhelming experience which signified for me freedom of creation, of beauty and the unexpected."
