Lemontree Paper Co. began almost 10 years ago as an amateur interest in calligraphy and hand lettering. Founder and Director, Betsy, started the company with a very organic vision: one that took on a life of its own with the addition of watercolour. As her skills grew, so did the size and calibre of Lemontree's projects and clients.

Today, Lemontree Paper Co utilises the talents of many to coordinate beautiful custom events that include stationery, favours, decor, fashion, guest gifting services, tableware, table linens, signage, furniture, and international site installations. Their clientele include some of the most elite, and those with the desire to put a creative, artistic spin on their events.



Betsy is the founding Director and Illustrator at Lemontree Paper Co. Her background extends through both the performing and visual arts, giving her a unique perspective on creative enterprise and an eye for the finest detail.

With an appreciation for tradition and a balance between naturalism and extravagance, her inspiration comes from botanicals, intricate patterns and textiles. Her one-of-a-kind pieces are the essence of Lemontree's style and exclusivity.

Betsy paints and designs in Melbourne on her property, drawing inspiration from the surrounding Edna Walling gardens, free range chickens and gorgeous new studio space.
