Salmon Inks and Pencil on Yupo Paper
Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, Jen Maffett got her degrees in writing and design. Then she went to work at a desk, using words and pictures to help big companies, small companies and also some non-profits communicate their message to the world. As an Internet "pioneer" she began to use words and pictures to create online stories just about the time that using art on the Internet became a reality. Yes, there really was a time when uploading a photo was a big deal! Through dot.com bubbles, mergers and extreme news events, Jen developed content and media products as the Internet became central to so many people's lives.
Then she hit the escape button and began a new chapter in life. She and her husband bought a farm and she slowly made the transition from click jockey to vegetable farmer. In her latest chapter, she and her husband went coastal (bringing their picks and shovels and vegetables with them).
So, as a new Washington County resident, she continues to tell stories with words and pictures ... often reflecting her appreciation and respect for food, farmers, nature and now, especially the sea.
