The Story of JILL+JACK PAPER
Hello and welcome to Jill+Jack Paper. I'm so glad you found your way here.
I'm Jillian Jackson, the self-taught illustrator and creative entrepreneur behind Jill+Jack Paper. I run this business from my home in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. If you check out my work, you'll find that many of my illustrations are inspired by my home.
Let's start with the greeting cards. The cards are made in Canada using my hand drawn illustrations on biodegradable wildflower seed paper. I created these cards because I wanted to use my art to bring love and connection to the humans living on this planet WITHOUT PRODUCING MORE WASTE and harming our planet.
As much as I love expressing my own thoughts and feelings through illustration and words on my greeting cards, I LOVE working with clients to illustrate their lives and businesses, too. My background in marketing and communications means that I'm a great listener and I have a knack for capturing the spirit of the people and businesses that I work with, putting your vision to paper through pictures.
My work brings me joy. It might just bring you or someone special to you joy, too.

About the seed paper: Wildflower seed paper is 100% biodegradable, made in Canada using post-consumer materials – no trees harmed! When the paper is planted in a pot of soil, the seeds grow and the paper composts away. All that is left behind is flowers. The wildflower blend includes: Bird's Eye (annual), Clarkia (annual), Black Eyed Susan (perennial), Catchfly (annual), Snapdragon (annual), Sweet Alyssum (annual)
