Welcome back to the Bison, Scout Paper Goods! Calgary-based maker Jenny Liski’s work was a big hit at the Winter 2018 Bison, and we’re oh-so-pleased to have her back for the spring event! Here’s what she has to say about her work:

Scout Paper is the result of my personal experiences and interest in nature and my wish to share that appreciation of our local flora and fauna with others.”

How do you stay motivated when you face these types of challenges?

I think it’s important to acknowledge that you can’t be working all the time, finding a balance of personal/creative/business time is important to avoid burning out.
