Where story meets inpiration.
Since a very young age, Jen has been sketching, doodling, painting, photographing, etc. Art has always been her passion.
Artfully Yours By Jen really came into play when Jen had an overabundance of phone books. Yes, phone books. It seemed like everyday, for an entire week, someone was dropping off phone books to her front door. What does one do with so many phone books, recycle them?
Looking out her window, overlooking her blooming garden, it hit her. Jen began cutting, folding, gluing. The result? A large, beautiful wall dahlia from those phone books. That was it, she was hooked.
Jen draws her inspiration from not only nature to make her paper flowers but the books used. To create an item, she starts with the book and decides from there what direction to go. Vintage books have so many stories to tell ... Who owned the book ... where the book has traveled. Not only do they hold the story from the author, they also hold the story of those who have been in contact with the book. Doodles from a child, a birthday message to a loved one, notes in the margins from a student. It is stories like those, that inspire Jen to create works of art from these once well loved vintage books.
