hello, i'm jen!
Before starting The Paper Flame, I would save my empty candle jars but never know what to do with them. I bought some candle supplies and re-used those jars to make new ones. I wanted to expand it to the local Indianapolis community, and over a weekend I had collected over 100 empty candle jars!
I am passionate about being eco-friendly and supporting local businesses, and I hope with this endeavor I can achieve both. All candles are hand-poured by me in my kitchen with 100% natural soy wax. All art prints are drawn by yours truly!
I’m an engineer by trade but a creative at heart. As a kid, I wanted to be a comic book artist, then a graphic designer, then a car designer… and ultimately picked mechanical engineer. I started this candle business as a creative outlet to my engineering 9-5 and it brings me so much joy!
