Paul Lowe: Sweet Paul Magazine - Creative Guru, Cooking & Crafting, Publisher
We Get to Know creative guru Paul Lowe from Sweet Paul Magazine.
Paul is the man behind Sweet Paul Magazine, a lifestyle publication featuring food, entertaining, and crafts - all without intimidation. Paul was born in Norway and from an early age became obsessed with cooking, crafting and decorating. He founded Sweet Paul Magazine nearly 10 years ago and now splits his time between New York and Palm Springs where he continues to run Sweet Paul Magazine and Blog. We were immediately smitten years ago when we first spotted his magazine in the store Anthropologie. We have been loving fans of both the magazine’s print and digital versions since the beginning. Paul is a creative through and through. While his parents were busy at work, Paul spent most of his days with his grandmother and great aunt, where his creative wish was their desire. They baked, crafted, sewed, and took him antique shopping. This foundation in his youth was the introduction for his life's work. He believes perfection is boring and we couldn’t agree more. Listen in and be swept away by his story.
