Jennifer emailed me a while ago and I found her story to be very inspiring and thought it would be something that lots of us could relate to. Like many of you, Jennifer struggles with balancing her full-time job and her passion for the arts and also finds it difficult to find free time to produce enough art to open up an Etsy shop. I think it's safe to say that these days, most folks are unable to up and leave a job that pays the bills in order to pursue a passion, lucky for Jennifer she found a way around it by licensing her art to a jewelry designer - Melissa of Madison Reece Designs. I've asked Jennifer if she could share her story and experience...
1. How would you describe your style?
I'd say my artistic style is organic, whimsical, stylish and clean. Being a designer often leaves my work with a strong graphic sense as well.
The three things that make me happy:
Happy in the morning. Sunday mornings are my 'let's make something fun' day. When the morning light comes in my studio, and I'm surrounded with bright colors, I feel super inspired to make something....anything....just as long as I take a break from my daily routine.
