About Jen


Hi, thanks for stopping by! I’m Jen. I’m living in beautiful Albuquerque, NM. I just received my Alternative Level 1 License for Elementary and Special Education, and am enrolled in CNM’s Alternative Teaching Licensure program completing the required classes. In my spare time, I am continuing to build my creative business.

I had the opportunity to run my own gallery in Old Town, Albuquerque, where I had 35 local artists on consignment. Now, I am focusing on my own work and attending local markets during the summer season where I sell my jewelry, photography, and Fur-ocious Portraits (pet portraits). I also have an Etsy shop. You can visit it here: www.etsy.com/shop/LaLocalLoca

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Design at Arizona State University. I also have an A.A.S. in Business Graphics. I love design and have a passion for learning and all things creative.

Some things I enjoy other than art/design include craft beer, dogs, and feeble attempts at fitness. (That last one is at odds with the first.) If you’re interested in seeing more, visit my instagram @lalocalloca.

I am always looking for opportunities to learn and to improve upon myself and my work. Please take a minute to look at my portfolio, or just to say “hello.”
