tuesday feature & GIVEAWAY! :: jen renninger // still room studio

posted on: August 24, 2010

today i am featuring the lovely jen renninger of still room studio/please be still! i remember being fascinated with jen's "we are all connected" piece from her words to live by series showcased in the jen11 exhibition. it is still my favorite print to this day because of what the words represent. nothing excites me more than when i find connections between people, places, and/or things. i think of community, and diversity, and differences, and how connections bring us closer to one another. so jen's work hit a spot in my heart! her talent and beauty exudes from what she creates. just from communicating through emails recently i have gathered that she is a warm, kind, and gifted person. i love when a person's personality shines through their creations.
"Jen has worked since 1998 as an illustrator and artist, creating chic modern images that resonate with a wide range of clients. Her eye catching work is soft yet powerful, combining sophisticated painting and line-work with nostalgic collage materials. The result is a portfolio of work honed to current trends yet rendered with a delicate hand. A selection of her client list includes: The Washington Post, The New York Times, Harper’s, Better Homes and Gardens, Bark, and Chronicle Books. Her work has also been honored by Communication Arts, Print magazine and featured in the book Fashion Illustration Now. A journal/collection of her collages has been published by Chronicle Books."
see below for details on the giveaway and a huge sale jen is having right now!
