Originally from Westchester County, New York, Jen grew up with a love for fashion and whimsically beautiful art. As early as she could remember, she was always sketching figures and fashionable illustrations everywhere she got the chance to. Her passion early on was capturing the unique idiosyncrasies of people. In tune with her own fashion sense, at the young age of 13, she began illustrating fashion figures in a hobby that would span across her entire adolescent years. Her biggest inspirations at the time were the iconic J.Crew Catalogs of the 90’s, which she endlessly stock-piled and collected, admiring them passionately. She took those influences and throughout her adolescence, illustrated what would become a vast fashion catalog of her very own creations.
During her youth, Jen developed a love for exquisite art and studied heavily in the Fine Arts. It wasn't until her formal art studies abroad in Paris, France, that she immersed herself in French Impressionism, particularly Pointillism. To this day, she pays homage to her favorite movement with playful influences of Neo-Impressionism in her uniquely evolving illustration style. The endless practicing of art studies and fashion illustration at a young age, gave her the ambition to follow her dreams back then and today. She went on to obtain a BFA in Studio Art (emphasis major in Illustration Drawing), French language immersion and Art History studies from La Sorbonne and The American University of Paris, and lastly, an AAS Fashion Design degree from Parsons School of Design in NYC. Jen then professionally pursued 15 years as a Fashion Designer in the Women's Contemporary NYC apparel industry.
Jen currently resides in Connecticut where she illustrates from her beloved creative studio. Launching her very own online illustration shop had been a life-long dream. Creating truly customized works of art for her clientele to cherish for a lifetime has been her most rewarding enjoyment thus far!
