Jen discovered her life's work at the early age of nine when she realized she was an artist. For the past
11 years, she has worked in colored pencil. In May 2004, Jen discovered the world of art dolls. Since she
was a child, Jen has wanted to create a doll. Discovering how to create one was fulfilling a childhood
dream. After that first doll, Jen was hooked.
Jen is a member of The Professional Doll Makers' Art Guild. In September 2006, Jen graduated from the
Professional Doll Makers program at Johnston Original Artdolls Academy of North Salt Lake City, Utah
becoming a Master Doll Artist.
Jen's dolls have been reproduced by Marie Osmond Dolls, The Masterpiece Collection for HSE, Middleton
Doll Company and Simply Reborn Dolls. Her OOAK dolls can be found in collections around the world.
Jen was born in Maine where she now lives with her family. She is the mom of two daughters, who are
her inspiration, and have been happily married since 1992. "I enjoy capturing a moment through my dolls.
Children grow so fast. It's so easy to miss the moments."
