Meet the Team

Humans and felines alike, these are the faces behind Panache.


Human, Designer

Charlene is the actual human who does all the
designing, assembly, and human things.
Some say they are a wizard


Feline, Execu-cat

Moxie is the one that keeps the human in line.
She doesn’t sit still for long and
resents picture taking.


Putting the Panache in Paper Art

Panache (Pan-ash or Pan-osh) means style or flair and our products have it in spades! Bringing a smile to the world, one item at a time

We are inspired by the everyday — the things that bring a quick smile to your face, that make us giggle, or give a sense of joy (hello tiny things!). We live for bright colors, boldness, and the unconventional.

Panache Paper Art specializes in Quilling, Paper Sculpture, and Digital Illustration. All of our products are handmade and sustainably or locally sourced (when not buying local, we love to support other small businesses). We use a minimum amount of materials (paper, paper, and more paper) and ensure our products are made to last (no hot glue here!).

We pride ourselves on being inclusive and are an LGBTQIA2S+ and woman-owned business.


Where can I find awesome paper art?

Apart from our online store, you can also find our whimsical handmade eco-friendly accessories in a few other places — we are working to add more and will make an announcement when we do.

Currently you can find us at:

Vancouver Farmers Market (Mid-March through October)


Amazon Handmade

Renew Malmesbury (UK)

Do you accept custom orders or comissions?

Custom orders can be tricky, but also rewarding! We can’t say yes or no without chatting about what you have in mind. Please contact us via with your idea.

Why are tiny things so cute?

Cuteness overload is a thing, all! There is even some super awesome science around it (check out this article). Basically, your brain’s reward and emotional system are, you guessed it, overloaded and you get that “I can’t stand it” feeling. We see this happen a lot with our products and totally understand. Cute tiny things are very hard to resist!
