About Me

Hello! My name is Meriana Maya, the owner and illustrator behind Seasoned With Salt Paperie. Here's a bit of my story:

This story starts with a whole lot of faith, a muster of courage, a love of people and a determination to follow my passion of illustration and love of stationery.


My love of stationery and illustration was deep rooted in me since I was a kid. Drawing and painting has always been my passion for as long as I could remember. Upon graduating high school, I declined many offers for various private art schools, letting go of scholarships in pursuit of pioneering. It was honestly the best decision I could have made.
 
Fast forward to now. 

Life's been quite the rollercoaster. My circumstances shifted and I could no longer pioneer. But as the opportunity rose when I lost my previous job, I decided to pursue my passions and work towards getting having a fuller share in the ministry while supporting myself financially through freelance illustration and this shop. It took much specific prayer, courage and faith, praying that this will help sustain me while simplifying my lifestyle. It was my goal to eventually work my way back to pioneering again.
UPDATE
(September 2018): After nearly 3 years since the opening of this shop, I'm SO excited to share that I finally turned in my application to start regular pioneering!
(March 2019): After a tumultuous year in my personal life and getting back into full time service, I received the privilege to help with LDC! Jehovah's keeping me so busy that I can't think. It's hard work, but the joy that comes from LDC is incomparable!

Currently I run the business on my own in between full time service. The illustrations on my products were all illustrated by hand, either hand painted or done digitally on Procreate by yours truly.  All of my pieces are made with lots of love, with hopes that it'll encourage and brighten any one's day.
 I'm incredibly grateful to Jehovah for the support that he's provided through friends like you that continue to support my work. As life continues to make shifts, I know without a doubt, that I'm never alone.

It's a privilege to send a piece of my heart with every one of your orders, so with much gratitude, I really want to thank you for supporting me!
