Jenny Herbert's Profile
As an only child, Jenny Herbert grew up amusing herself on the shag carpet in her family's New England home - this mostly entailed losing herself in doodles and books. Years later, not much has changed. Now residing in Brooklyn, she draws inspiration from her daydreams where ordinary people and objects take on a naive and peculiar charm. Creating her own universe, her drawings are her cast of characters from another dimension. Perhaps these are the people or things we often see in our dreams, an imprint or memory of something that was once familiar. Having a versatility above and beyond illustration, Jenny expanded her work to include textiles, clothing, and home goods. Years of working for top designers in New York has helped Jenny develop an excellent eye for detail. This precision coupled with her distinct sensibility, infuses her work and marks it as singular.
