Jenny Venn, free lance graphic designer, jenvenn.com
Jenny Venn is a designer, educator, storyteller, and activist who lives, loves and creates for Joy! from her *heart*land, Wichita, Kansas.
After graduating with a BFA and MFA from Fort Hays State University in 2007, Jenny packed up her bags and headed west to develop and maintain the graphic design program at the University of Wyoming.
After six transformative years living at 7200 feet, much personal and professional development, exhibiting, publishing, and flocks of birdies leaving the nest, the Universe spoke loud and clear. The time had come to move onward and upward enabling Jenny to pursue her passions full-time in a space and community that allowed her to take root and expand.
Today, Jenny is an independent graphic designer creating for clients down the street and around the world while also teaching art and design courses at Fort Hays State and Friends University.
Her energy, Gift, and some might say Purpose remains centered on design for social change through the lens of healing with fulcrums including: all things Woman, body-image, holistic health and well-being, personal growth and development, transformation and survivorship.
