Jen is a commercial interior designer in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and also runs her own business, designing sewing patterns and fabric for handbags and accessories. Jen represents the third generation of female stitchery whizzes in her family. From her mother, grandmother, and great aunt, she absorbed, "one part precision and technique, one part resourcefulness, and two parts pure stubbornness and gusto." Jen's inspiration is sparked by her surroundings: clean lines in architecture, textures and patterns, Southwest sunsets, mountains, and deserts. When she's not designing the interior of a new building or sewing, Jen can be found hiking, biking, camping, and daydreaming.
