Hi, I’m Deanna. I founded Cake & Flower Paper in 2016 after working as a graphic designer for 10 years. It started with a watercolor paint set and has grown into a small business that brings me so much happiness! While design will always be a love of mine, I feel more creative and authentic drawing and painting. I specialize in illustration, invitations and have a small collection of greeting cards and art prints in my shop. Everything is printed in the USA and assembled by hand in my home studio.

I’m located in Geneva, Illinois, a Chicago suburb with charming boutiques, historic homes and lots of ice cream shops (it’s really adorable here!) I have a home studio which means it’s often messy but in a good way. 

Outside of my studio I love spending time with my two little girls and taking daytrips to the city for inspiration. You can usually find me at Target, too.
