Hello! It’s time to tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Jennifer, and I’m from a suburb outside of Detroit, Michigan. I’ve lived here my whole life. One thing that is (mostly) great about Michigan is our four seasons, and the different activities/weather/clothing/food each one brings! There’s a joke about living here: if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes and it’ll change!
I have always been creative. I studied graphic design for a couple of years before choosing to head down another path. Fast forward a few (or about ten, if I’m being honest) years and I have rediscovered my love of drawing and painting, so I decided to open an Etsy shop to get my work out there.
I have found I enjoy many things that let me be creative, such as baking and making decorations for my home. I love to create things with my own hands and bring an idea to life. I like to explore different mediums, but I always go back to painting and drawing. That is where my passion is. The ability to bring a vision to paper or canvas really excites me! I have recently tried my hand at drawing using a digital program, Procreate. So far, I am in love! I suppose I should add digital canvas to that list!
I enjoy sharing my process of creating, so you can see how something starts from essentially nothing into a finished piece of art. I have many other interests, mostly all on the creative end of things, so ALL my posts won’t be about art. But a lot will.
Ultimately, I would love to see my work all over different types of products, and in homes all over the world! Right now, Freckles N Flowers Art is a one woman show though. I do it all myself. Design my images, create them, print everything, cut and gloss my stickers. There is only a few items in my shop right now that are NOT created by me: a few stickers (most I do myself), the mugs, and any poster size prints. I don’t quite have the capabilities to do all that yet.
