I'm Jen, the girl behind Red Parka Diaries. I live on the beautiful island of Tasmania with my husband Wade and our dog Benny. I'm an illustrator who dabbles in all sorts of creative arts and loves bright colours, vintage design, adventures, travelling, caravans, trees, elephants and everything handmade! I believe in marching to your own beat, living a life full of love and adventure, getting back to basics and being real.
Red Parka Diaries is a blog about art, craft and building a beautiful, creative, sustainable and original life. It's a place for me to share my own and others artwork, to document my journey and to share the things that inspire me. It's about what makes me come alive. I love connecting with creative, adventurous people all around the world and I hope you'll be one of them!
Right now you're saying to yourself 'wow, she sounds like an awesome person and I should go see her blog ASAP aka yesterday!' Or you're one of the lucky people who've gotten to know Jen and her lovely self, and so you're just stopping back by because you regularly do. Regardless, you should go visit today! It's going to be her birthday in just a few days (Happy Birthday Jen!) and so she's throwing quite a giveaway shindig for it. So, go say hi and 'happy birthday' and found out more about how she became an illustrator and all about her life's adventures and then register to win some great prizes...including a chance to win some prime ad space here on Grits And Moxie. Be sure to spread the word...and be sure to visit Jen often, eh?!
