Jen Osborn is a third generation artist and freelance writer who lives in rural Michigan with her family. She has an enormous imagination and loves nothing more than opening other people’s eyes to what lies inside her mind by creating artwork that’s as fun to touch as it is to look at! She has a knack for blending quirky vintage photographs with modern techniques which lets you experience a burst of colorful eye candy. She stitches together fabric and paper to create tiny story quilts which tease your eyes and tickle your heart. She loves to work within the mixed-media world creating collages on canvas, felt or paper, but also makes handmade books, journals and purses. In 2003 she developed an innovative art technique for manipulating transparency images with fire that was published in Transparent Art and Somerset Workshop 2. She teaches her cutting edge techniques locally, and at national mixed media conferences. Currently she is a Design Team Member for Glitter & Grunge, and interested in licensing her whimsical drawings. Jen's first book, Mixed and Stitched is on stands now.
