Lia Griffith uses PanPastel for coloring her beautiful hand made paper flowers.
“I love using PanPastel because their colors are gorgeous!
They add such beautiful dimension and depth to our crepe paper, frosted paper, and felt flowers, plus they blend so well together. You can also get a lot out of one pan since the colors are so saturated.
We use them so much in our studio that we collaborated with PanPastel to create our own designer set!” - Lia Griffith

My grandfather was a painter, illustrator, and professor. I grew up sitting on his lap watching him draw. It fascinated me. I had an amazing (and patient, ha) art teacher in high school that nurtured my abilities and helped me create a portfolio that was awarded several scholarships to major art schools.
