Hello! I’m Patricia Zapata and I’m passionate about what I do. I love the design process, coming up with new ideas, and making them come to life. I could never do anything else.
I am a graphic designer and paper crafter constantly trying to find a balance between graphic elements and organic shapes. I work with paper three-dimensionally to indulge a childhood fascination with the simple medium. I create contemporary imagery that is applied to company logos and identities, illustrations, SVG files for paper projects, and fabric.
My paper crafting work has been featured in several online publications, in national magazines, and on local TV. My first book, Home, Paper, Scissors: Decorative Paper Accessories for the Home is a collection of more than 30 papercraft projects that use paper and recyclable materials. My love for paper crafting and artwork helped me win the Scotch Brand’s Most Gifted Wrapper Contest, which led to other opportunities such as presentations with national Saturday morning shows and local TV presentations.
My most recent work has been about exploring new ways to provide interesting DIY cutting projects. I enjoy making projects that are simple to make but stylish and unique. My downloadable SVG cutting files are sold at my A Little Hut shop.
I license patterns and prints for surface design purposes and three-dimensional designs suitable for wall art, home decor, crafting projects, and giftware. I always welcome new collaborative opportunities.
