Artist's Bio

Jenny grew up in San Diego, California in a neighborhood where creativity was as much of a life skill as frugality. As a child, she spent many days drawing, listening to music, and playing make-believe, often in the nearby eucalyptus groves with friends. Stories of overseas deployments/ assignments by neighbors and friends were ever-present, leading to a lifelong curiosity of the world and a passion for travel.

After attending San Diego State University, Jenny held a brief career as a museum educator in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the DC Metro area. Following the birth ofher children, she returned to art making full-time, completing studies in Children’s Book Illustration at UC San Diego. Her artwork is influenced by storytelling, humor, and the absurd, whilst equally inspired by symbolism, nature, and her own world travels. Jenny lives on a small farm in Oregon with her family.
