Welcome to My Arty World
Thanks for visiting the Art by Jenny art space!
Hi, I'm Jenny James. An Australian Artist with a love of all things arty and creative... I love everything about art, whether you call it fine arts, papercrafts or just messing about with paint, its all pretty awesome in my eyes! I love all the colours and textures, stamping, painting, drawing, stenciling, colouring in, journaling and creating, Gelli printing, helping and inspiring others, sharing techniques, making ATCs and drinking coffee. I also like gardening, bike riding, reading, embroidery and crochet.
Art ... it heals, it soothes and is a lot of fun!
This website is a collection of all I do, like a directory. It includes details about my online shop of art and craft supplies for sale, the free mixed media tutorials, links to news updates, my Redbubble store, workshop information and other useful things.
Other online worlds that help share the love of all things arty are Instagram (a beautiful photo gallery with a mix of personal and business), Pinterest (an endless stream of incredible art by everyone in the world) and Facebook (a fabulous community for chatting, helping, inspiring and encouraging).
My shop, Art by Jenny is an online art and craft store that sells amazing arty treasures (art and craft supplies), sending them all over Australia and over to New Zealand. My world is totally immersed with everything to do with arts and crafts. I love it! One day I'll have a large enough studio, workshop and gallery so I can host retreats with views of the sea as we paint... You've got to Dream Big!
If you're in Facebook, Instagram, Redbubble, Google+, Pinterest, have a blog or see me in the real world, don't be shy! Smile and wave, say hello, show off your latest creation :) I love to see everyone's artwork!
Sing out if you have questions or need a hand, I'm always happy to help!
Have a happy creative day!

I'm called Georgiegirl over in Redbubble. I have a whole gallery of artwork and photography ready for anyone to choose to have my designs created into giftware, wallart and greeting cards!
Having been a member of RB since it began, I've learnt alot over the years! Thankfully, people I don't even know have chosen to buy my designs on clothing, mugs, tapestries, scarves, phone and ipad covers, postcards, greeting cards and so much more. So grateful. RB is a wonderful online community where I've made many friends around the corner and across the globe!
Redbubble is free to join, easy to use and the ownership of your artwork remains your own. So if you're like me and love to paint and create, why not pop over and check it out.
Utilisng a Print-on-Demand service like this means we don't have to worry about manufacturing products, printing, packaging, posting or anything... we just concentrate on creating artwork and or taking photos, managing our own mini gallery.
Other online communities like Zazzle, Society6 and Deviant Art are similar, but there is only one Redbubble!
