IVORY IS THE FINE ART CALLIGRAPHY & wedding STATIONERY STUDIO BY MARCELA STAUB, focused on the organic and romantic aesthetic and intimate atmosphere.
As long as I can remember, I have always been in love with art. I grew up watching my mom paint oil on canvas and delicate porcelain pieces. I vividly remember the smell of paint and solvents, the beautiful colours all mixed up on the glass palette and her artwork collection: beautiful paintings of roses and ships, plates, tea cups, little découpage boxes. I was very influenced and supported by family of artists, each one blessed with a special gift. I've been drawing since I was a kid and for a very long period of time I wanted to become a children's book illustrator. I learned to paint with watercolours by myself and I'm also self-taught in calligraphy. During Graphic Design college I fell in love with typography, color, grids, editorial design and printing.
The wedding industry always appealed to me as I feel so connected with all the beauty and love that surrounds a wedding day. That's what has driven me to create Ivory in the first place. I want to create paper that provoke emotions and not only have a beautiful aesthetic, but are also intimate and special, a keepsake for a lifetime. Working with weddings is a dream within a dream - I can't describe how amazing it is to have this job! I have the honour of being part of someone's most special day.
“LOVE MANY THINGS, FOR THEREIN LIES THE TRUE STRENGTH, AND WHOSOEVER LOVES MUCH PERFORMS MUCH, AND CAN ACCOMPLISH MUCH, AND WHAT IS DONE IN LOVE IS DONE WELL.”
