Welcome to my happy place,
Summer Space Studio
Hi I'm Poy!
Founder of Summer Space -
An artfully handcrafted paper flower studio
II created this studio in 2017 when life was complicated. I struggled to find a job after graduating from my Master's while living in New York City. I set aside 1-2 hours to make 1 flower everyday, to keep my mind out of refreshing my inbox to see if I'd get any job offer. After 100 days, I fell in love with paper flower making. I walked on the street of NYC asking to partner with stores from teaching workshops and doing pop-ups.
Fast forward to 2020, life threw another lesson at me, I took it as a blessing in disguise to make this studio my full-time job.
Summer Space is a place I get to share my creation with people through my art. Whether it's a statement piece for your homes or loved ones, a bridal bouquet recreation to celebrate your wedding anniversary or workshops that you get to wind down, learn something new or spend time with your loved ones.
I'm thankful for collaborations with brands like Adobe, Helix Sleep, Brit+Co, IBM, Madewell, Maman NYC Papersource and more for the opportunities throughout the years!
And I'm grateful for YOU for being here and following along my journey.

I have backgrounds in UX Design, Illustrations and Advertising. Before starting this studio, I've worked in an Advertising company, a production house in Thailand and my last corporate job was at the world's leading multinational cosmetics company, Estee Lauder. I had my bachelor in Advertising from Thammasat University and Master in Professional Studies at Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU.
I considered myself a multi-passionate person and the journey of running this studio allowed me to juggle between many hats.
The best parts are that I get to challenge myself everyday, re-learn my old skills and face my fear to do something I'm not familiar with.
