Paulette Erato in handmade True Bias Lander shorts

Hi! I’m Paulette Erato, the irreverent voice behind Petite Font. 

As a curly-haired childfree dirty-mouthed Latina who loves subverting stereotypes, I’m here to inspire other childfree women of color and femmes over 40 to become the most creative versions of themselves through DIY fashion and food. 

I live in the Greater Los Angeles area with my husband and our one plant. In my free time, I drink and I sew things (and if you recognize the quote from Game of Thrones, then extra internet points for you!)

Petite Font is for makers: this where ordinary people become extraordinary makers! 

EVERYONE is a maker and I’m here to prove to people who say “I’m not creative” are merely suffering from limiting beliefs that I’ll help you smash through.

We are all makers, yes even you. 

If you’re ready to start tapping into your own inherent creativity, get started by downloading the mini e-book
