jen has been painting all her life, starting her studies as an apprentice in new zealand when she was only 12. she has been in provo, working as an artist since 2006.

“I try and bring my ethos of sustainability into everything I create; this is evident in my purses made from upcycled fabrics, my handbound books, and my work with driftwood” she says.
