In every subscription box we send out, we include an original piece of artwork from a maker. We ask an artist to create a piece that goes with our theme. We were thrilled when mixed media artist, Jenny Baio, agreed to create our Welcome Cactus Art
that will go in every new subscriber’s box.
As a self describer, crayon hoarder, Jenny was thrilled this Christmas when her daughter gave her a 25-year old unopened box of commemorative Crayola Crayons.
Of course, she said, I opened it right away and only one crayon was damaged.
Jenny paints, draws, sketches, colors, sews, embroiders and so much more. (And it is not everyone who can rock green gummy bear earrings, like Jenny does!)
At her full time job at a software company, in Chandler Arizona, she finds time to create welcoming seasonal and themed art to be enjoyed by all who
enter the building. She often creates this art without a “budget”– using ordinary office supplies, tape, glue and repurposed or recycled goods like this “Radiate Gratitude” piece (made with recycled boxes) she created with a co-worker.
We love following her on instagram
@jennyabioartwork and seeing all that she creates. She often posts a series of “in the works” photos and it is fascinating to watch her creative process.
Every good has a maker. Every maker has a story. Are you a maker? Or know a maker you would like us to feature? We would love to see what you make and tell your story. Sign up to be a maker on our website.
