I'm Jen! I was born and raised in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area and grew up with a strong urge to pursue a creative life but unsure of which direction to go in.
After years of the 9-5 office grind, I realized that I needed a change. I craved inspiration and a creative outlet. So I quit my current job of five years, gave away my apartment, and sold most of my belongings in exchange for a backpack and a one-way ticket to New Zealand
I had never felt more alive in my life. That trip forever changed me and gave me the direction I had been searching for. I moved back to the city, where I currently live and work, to pursue the creative life I'd always wanted and decided to focus solely on drawing and illustration. It speaks the loudest to me as a way to express my optimistic, playful and lovingly irreverent perspective of the world around me.
My everyday surroundings deeply inspire me as well as the whimsical nature of the human spirit. I enjoy creating work that brings a smile (or a smirk) to every face.
