About

I am an artist and a writer. I have a degree in fine art and a minor in creative writing. I spent the last semester of my senior year of college in Caen, France. I have a love of vintage things, and especially love the styles and fashions of the 1940's.

Not only have I always loved creating things with my hands, I have also always loved writing and the spoken word- (I loved learning French during my time in France) I am currently working on my mother's biography~ you can check out excerpts from my book here: wwwjenncaen.tumblr.com.

I truly cannot think of a time when I was not knee deep in glitter, glue, crayons and paint, tinfoil or whatever I could get my hands on. I made anything and everything, literally. I made candles from crayons in my Suzy Bake Oven... and unfortunately, a Jute Macrame baby swing for my cousin's new baby. I am happy to say I have refined my…

I made candles from crayons in my Suzy Bake Oven... and unfortunately, a Jute Macrame baby swing for my cousin's new baby. I am happy to say I have refined my craft over the years (for your sake and mine, because at this point macrame baby swings would make everyone cry). I do however still do many different types of art...wherever a whim may carry me. I work in ceramics, mosaic, paper casting, photography, collage, jewelry making, knitting, sewing, crochet, embroidery, graphic design, drawing, painting, millinery, writing, illustration or any combination of the above. If I listed them all, this sentence may literally never end... I think you get the picture!

I have collage type way of doing things. ..somewhat of a collageologist you might say. I think I have finally created a category for myself!! Whether creating something with my hands or on the written page it is where I feel at home.

Thank you for visiting~
