Hi, thanks for visiting! I’m Monika!

I'm a Toronto based illustrator and the owner of the Stationery and gift company Salt & Paper. Originally an International Travel Agent in the corporate travel world, I started my business as a side hustle to fund my adventures. Since then I've illustrated for clients both large and small such as the BBC and CityLine.

In addition to working on custom illustrations (which I often also hand carve into rubber stamps), I also create witty and colourful goods like greeting cards, stickers, notepads and more. My products are inspired by the city, pop culture, and food.
