I'm Tessa, the owner & creator behind Fox & Bear Paper Co.
I am a self-taught illustrator working out of my home in beautiful Eugene, OR. Originally from the San Francisco Bay, I relocated to Oregon and have been nestled in the valley for about 6 years. This place, surrounded by pine covered hills and foresty farmlands, is perhaps one of the biggest inspirations behind my work as I take in the abundance of flora and fauna around me. With stationery, it's important to me that I artfully blend the elements of nature with sensibility in a style that suits all ages and races across the globe.
I started my shop on Etsy in 2015 with less than 10 greeting card designs. I now offer over 90 greeting card designs, one of which was picked up by Paper Source in 2018. I am happy to also be stocked in independent shops across the US.
