Hello! I am Jenny Johannsen and I love to create...

  • While I have never met a color that I did not like, I really cannot get enough of blue and greens.   I usually attribute this to being the mother of two rambunctious boys, but honestly my deep love for navy was burning bright before they were in the picture.
  • I grew up in St. Louis, but Kansas City is now our home.  I love the four seasons of the midwest and how each one is unique and helps to mark the passage of time.
  • I now have two studios in my home as paint and fabric do not mix.  Or mix well.  And who really needs space for workout equipment anyway?
  • My husband is my creative partner in crime-whether that is constructing something for the house, torching resin for me on a piece of art, or being manual labor at all my events.
  • It has taken me over thirty years of living and seven years of psychological training to embrace that I am an introvert and there is nothing wrong with me when I want to stay home alone to paint or read or create.  
  • Lit string lights over a patio make me insanely happy.
  • So does coffee. And picking flowers from our yard for bouquets.
  • I am trying really hard to be a morning person.  I am not quite there.
