Jen, Jeni, Jennifer

I answer to them all. I was born, raised, and married in North Dakota. We moved to Colorado in 2016 after my husband retired from the Air Force. The mountains and the abundance of yarn stores spoke to my soul but being a small(ish) town girl at heart who missed living close to family, we decided to move to Hot Springs at the beginning of 2020. I like to spend my time with my husband and our fur babies, yarning, and photographing all the things.

I was taught to crochet at an early age by my grandmother. What started as a way to entertain a bored teenager turned into a lifelong love of all things fiber and photography. After mastering the basic techniques taught to me, I began teaching myself more intricate patterns and designs and eventually started creating my own patterns. Along the way, I also taught myself to knit, tat, and some basic quilting. I spent years creating things for family and friends perfecting my skills.

In 2017, I opened an Etsy store and started selling my pieces to the public. My inability to capture the kinds of images I saw on Pinterest and in other Etsy stores led me to ditch my cell phone photography, buy a real camera, and head to the local college. I graduated in May of 2020 with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Photography. I specialize in commercial, event, and animal photos.
