Hello. My name is Jennifer Perry and I'm a digital artist based in Los Angeles.
A lot of my art is made using Procreate on my iPad Pro with Apple Pencil or Photoshop on my computer. I have an affinity for nature, so you'll see botanical and animal references in almost everything I do. I think it's important to keep a focus on our planet and the beauty ournatural world offers.
After more than 20 years working as a product and project manager in large corporations, I became temporarily disabled due to chronic illness. And even though my father had also been suffering with a progressive illness, he passed away sooner than we all expected. I took time to focus on my family needs and myself and returned to my love of art after a period of healing. Working full time had not allowed me much time to do art even though I had always wanted to pursue my own art business eventually.
I made the decision to start working on art to keep my mind engaged and my spirit hopeful. I had started my college education as an architecture major and had years of graphic design work experience at various companies, but I hadn't really done much actual drawing since my younger days. As I created more and more art for myself, I realized that it may be possible to make a living from my creations. With the encouragement of family and friends, that is what I'm aspiring to do.
My involvement in Inktober served as a way to build up a portfolio and get me into a daily art practice. Even though I would love to be able to paint on large canvases and create adventurous original pieces, my body will not allow me to sustain any productivity in that medium. Working digitally, there's no bulky stuff to move around or clean up. Every now and then I do projects on paper as well.
My shop is powered by Shopify and I use a variety of print-on-demand vendors to fulfill my products so that I don't have to carry an inventory.
