pixel paper hearts started as a creative outlet tag teamed by a sister / brother duo - Charisse de Leon and Wayne Reyes. their love affair for all things design sprung out of Room 113 - their high school graphic arts classroom. it was in that room where they first learned to cut rubylith, used a printing press, exposed a silk screen and of course, met Adobe. there was something about conjuring a vision then executing your ideas using mix media that resonated in their guts. it was passion. the finished product was a way of connecting to others long before the social media phenomenon.
pixel paper hearts made it's online debut in May 2013 via Etsy as a "print shop". it included a small collection of 13 wall prints which illustrated modern typography designs and words that motivated, inspired & warmed hearts.
since then, pixel paper hearts graduated from their humble beginnings to a full fledged graphic design umbrella fabricating custom designs, witty social stationery and other modern goods.
today, Wayne is a registered nurse working full-time in downtown Toronto. pixel paper hearts operates solely under Charisse’s creative direction. her goal is to produce designs that are fun and light hearted. Charisse cultivates a simple life with her (chef, ooo la la) husband & two young children in a small suburb west of Toronto.
