Hi! I’m Paulette Erato, the irreverent voice behind Petite Font. Paulette Erato in handmade True Bias Lander shorts

After a career in managing events and corporate planning, I’ve taken my skill for herding cats and transformed it into creating beautiful things.

I also like my tea lattes brewed to warm, salty things like truffle popcorn, and sour Belgian-style beer.

I fully admit that I have no idea what I’m doing about 73% of the time, but I’m going to lead you on this awesome journey of post-40s self-discovery anyway because why not?!

I live in Los Angeles with my husband and our plant, a wild Spanish oregano that grows like a weed and is named Sporegano.

If you’d like to get in touch, send me an email at hello AT petitefont DOT com.

The Petite Font Maker Manifesto

We are ALL a work in progress. My goal is to inspire you to make yourself a more fit/sophisticated/superior you TOO, and hopefully, you’ll feel like this is a safe space to share your journey with me and other readers in the comments.

I have made many mistakes along the way to 40. A LOT of mistakes! And boy, have I learned from (many) of those mistakes. What’s that saying? Your life can serve as a warning an inspiration to others? That’s what I’m here to provide!

Welcome! I hope you have a good time here.
