The no soliciting sign is a work of art. The seller responds quickly to my questions. My package arrived within a few days of order.

I find comfort knowing that some things will never change. It's a promise.

About

Keeping Traditions of Family and Faith Alive through Art

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Jenny (written with a backwards “J”) who was terrified of everything in the world except maybe her mother. She would cry and hold onto chair legs when it was time to visit a friend’s house. She hid in the corner in preschool, misunderstanding the other kids’ friendly advances as attacks. She would not utter a word to anyone willingly and school psychologists suggested she might be “retarded.” She was debilitatingly shy, silenced by fear. She was obsessed with order and perfectionism. The world was a big, terrifying place full of people who were constantly prodding her to talk, smile, play and just be like the other kids. As she grew up, she got better at playing that game. She even managed to fool a few people into believing she was perfect so they would find no reason to criticize her. For a long time, she even believed her own story.

But perfectionism is over-rated. To believe in labels other people give you is to disconnect from who you are meant to be. To be too fearful to act is to deny God’s plan for your life. I am Jen. Sometimes Jennifer. No longer Jenny, although I am grateful for her strength and fortitude and history. I am passionate about color and pattern and stories with meaning.

I am an Artist.

If it weren't for art, I might never be able to share my story.

Without art, you probably wouldn't hear me anyway.

My art celebrates the place that gave me the love and foundation to be brave: Home.
