A creative force, she is the founder of Petit Collage, a line of modern room decor and playthings for kids. Launched in 2006 with Lorena’s distinctive collages on wood, Petit Collage has since expanded to include playthings, prints on wood, mobiles and more. Petit Collage products are designed and produced with the planet in mind, using eco-friendly materials. The line is sold at thousand of stores worldwide including Barnes and Noble, Land of Nod, Anthropologie, Giggle, and SFMoma.
Lorena has a passion for the handmade: her first craft book, “Petit Collage: 25 easy craft and décor projects for a playful home” was published recently by Potter Craft. She has also written and illustrated more than 30 books for children, published around the world in many languages.
Lorena has been featured in both traditional and new media such as “The Martha Stewart Show,” The New York Times and Dwell magazine, and popular blogs such as Oh Joy, Design*sponge, Decor8, Apartment Therapy, Print and Pattern and many more.
Lorena began Petit Collage with a collage on wood handmade from found and vintage papers, and the line’s decor and playthings still reference its origins in collage and pattern. Lorena is thrilled to expand her love of pattern with this collection for Cloud9!
