Hello, I'm Jennifer and I am passionate about colour. Being bold with colour in my art, home and wardrobe is a necessary expression for me. My mission is to create vibrant art and design that is uplifting and makes you feel good. I believe there are no limitations to the use of colour in design but even selective little pops of colour can enliven our homes. By using my reusable fabric Art Wraps as tablecloths, cushion covers and fashion accessories, I hope to provide the enjoyment of that pop of colour at a low financial commitment. Change things up and have fun!
I have had a rewarding career as an art director, illustrator and designer in the fields of editorial, publishing, advertising and product design, working with some great clients including LA Times, Delta Airlines, The United Way, The Royal Bank of Canada, Zoomer magazine, Orca Book Publishers, Food Illustrated UK, Façon magazine Australia, Mudpuppy/Galison, Klutz Publishing, Enigma magazine and Running Press.
In 2007, I launched a line of fabric gift wrap called Furochic, inspired by the Japanese furoshiki cloth and I wrote a book called Wrapagami, the Art of Fabric Gift Wrap, published by St. Martin’s Griffin/Macmillan, NYC. Although I received positive press, the market wasn't quite ready for this "gift wrapping revolution" (Chatelaine magazine) in North America. Fast forward 15 years, I have relaunched the concept of reusable gift wrap as a way to use my Art Wraps and the timing is right with people looking for sustainable options. Some of my customers from over 15 years ago are still using my wraps which is exactly as they were intended, to never be thrown out!
My long-standing passion for pattern design and home décor has led me to apply my designs to wallpaper as well in collaboration with Faye Jennifer Design in the UK.
I was born in Toronto and grew up in Europe which has greatly influenced my art and design. I currently create in my sunroom studio in Victoria, on Vancouver Island and am inspired by my children who are on their own artistic and musical journeys.
