LOCALLY SOURCED PAPER ART
Look closely at any one of the dozens of cheerful characters and scenes designed by Elana and Lily Royer for their Lilybart greeting card and paper art company. And, in each piece of artwork, you will see cutlines made by a pair of hand-hewn scissors the mother-daughter duo discovered while on a getaway weekend/card delivery in Ouray.
Look again, and you’ll notice the clever way these two artists repurpose MP’s pages. They create finely wrought whiskers, evergreen tufts, granite hillsides, ski runs, poinsettias, bears, sheep, foxes, birds, and any creature that captures their keen interest. Their work lovingly reflects their respect for wild and domesticated animals. Their kinship with our beloved mountains. And their loving sense for our community with all of its quirky charm.
Lilybart was started ten years ago. In fact, the idea came while Lily Royer recovered in Denver Children’s Hospital after her lung collapsed due to complications of her lifelong fight with Cystic Fibrosis. A handmade card arrived from her brother William. His loving care and the bright, cheerful colors inspired hours of collaborative brainstorming and a plan to co-create a line of cards to raise awareness of CF.
Lilybart’s Starry Night artwork inspired the theme of our Locally Sourced Gift Box and is featured as a journal included in this collection.
