Hi, I'm Jenna, a surface pattern designer, printer and entrepreneur, here to guide and teach you how to get your sketches onto products.
Formerly a biologist, I know what it's like to want to escape the corporate grind and be successful in a creative field.
I taught myself how to draw and took many classes in silkscreening, block printing, letterpress and wood cut, all so that I could sell products with my unique designs on them.
Then I finally took the plunge from doing everything by hand to learning how to digitize my work with Adobe Illustrator. I'm not going to lie...it was confusing!
This free Quick Start workshop cuts through the fluff and speeds up your learning curve. After 4 short lessons, you'll be able to order gift wrap, fabric, bed linens, coffee mugs and more...all with YOUR terrific designs on them!
"Jenna has broken down a complicated computer program into such easy to follow steps! I thought that I was too old and not tech-savvy enough to do this. I also thought that I couldn't draw. She taught me how to do both."
