Amber Lotus Publishing is excited to welcome Anahata Joy Katkin to our family. We have been a big fan of her soul-stirring artwork for a long time, so working together to publish her collection of calendars has been a thrill.
PAPAYA co-founder Anahata Joy Katkin developed her passion for the arts by trial-and-error discovery. She creates original paintings, drawings, and mixed media pieces that have woven a heartcentered landscape of offbeat muses and vivid illustrations. PAPAYA’s signature aesthetic has been celebrated around the globe since 2003.
“I love the place where pretty and gritty meet. Where flowers, faces, and ink run together. I’m endlessly inspired by repeating themes of plants, travel, Victorian era, folk arts, Asian influences, and female faces. I believe in working from impulse to impulse and answering to an intuitive process. I make artwork for myself and then weave pieces into our PAPAYA & FIREWEED collections alongside our talented in-house design team.” — Anahata Joy Katkin
