Jennifer Nelson's Profile

About

Hello,

My name is Jenny Nelson, I was born and raised in St. Louis MO. I come from a family fully of creative artistic people. My mother can do everything from painting, to crochet, sewing, you name it. My father has been a cabinet maker at the St. Louis Art museum for over 20 years.

I never thought 6 years ago when I opened my shop that it would one day become my full time job, but it did! When I was younger, I wanted to be an artist, teachers always said that I needed to become something a bit more practical. I was told I needed to go to school and study art if I wanted to make a career out of it. I'm so glad my parents were there to tell me that I could be anything I wanted to be.

I am one of the lucky few who actually grew up to be exactly what she wanted to be!
