Meet the Creators
Blue Paradise — The Little Branch x Louie Luxe Artist Collection — showcases the combined talents of Australian designers Maree Oaten and Jesse Windle.
Maree Oaten is the Creative Director of Little Branch, a paper-lovers paradise featuring her own original watercolour designs on artisan cards, wrapping paper and art prints that celebrate the beauty of connecting with others.
Louie Luxe is the creative child of Gold Coast typographer Jesse Windle, who honours life’s special moments in custom collages featuring her distinctive hand-brushed ink lettering.
When Maree and Jesse first crossed paths on the school run, they quickly discovered they had more in common than kids in the same grade. Born days apart and sharing the same middle name, both love the colour blue and have a passion for paper, ink and art that touches the heart.
“Everything that I do for Little Branch comes from my hands, which is what Jesse does as well. I love the raw quality of Jesse’s creations. When I saw her work, I was already designing in my head. I knew we could create something together that would touch people.” Maree Oaten, Little Branch
About the Collection
Louie Luxe’s signature brushwork lettering and Little Branch’s moody watercolours combine in an exclusive handcrafted collection which includes artisan cards, gift wrapping and a limited edition boxed gift set.
There are 21 card designs, inspired by those occasions which open our hearts to love, happiness, hope and growth — new babies, joyful birthdays, lovers who light us up, weddings, endings, and everything in between! Printed on a luxurious textural paper featuring an understated geometric texture of fine dots, made FSC certified.
The limited edition 12-pack delivers a card for every occasion and comes beautifully boxed. Inside you’ll find a handwritten message from Jesse, making an ultimate gift for yourself or someone special.
The wrapping paper features two exclusive designs — ‘tis the seasons to eat, drink and be kind’ and the other a watercolour kiss — and is printed on a luxurious smooth paper, made FSC certified.
The entire collection is proudly designed and made in Queensland, Australia.
“This luxurious reusable paper can be reused to wrap flowers, line draws, cover books and make your own collage creations.” Maree Oaten, Little Branch
