My name is Jenny James, I’m a freelance graphic designer, artist and photographer, living in the southern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia. I share my home with my son and our adorable black and white cat, Socks.
My graphic design career began over 20 years ago at The Adelaide Advertiser as an ENS Compositor, and now I also have my Diploma of Multimedia. Over the years have worked on newspapers, advertising, all forms of printed media, books and magazines as well as needlework patterns.
My day job is a graphic and web designer for a company called Country Bumpkin, who are an Adelaide based craft shop, online shop and a publisher of needlework books and Inspirations, our beautiful embroidery magazine. Not the same CB who you’ve heard me mention over the years… this is ‘CB the Sequel’, with a fab new owner and much better than ever!!! If you need any needlework supplies, accessories, books, embroidery kits or gifts, visit them at www.countrybumpkin.com.au.
When I’m not working, I’m usually drawing, painting (digitally and traditionally), creating ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), scrapbooking, animating with drawings, clay and the computer, and floating around my favourite virtual home (Redbubble, not Facebook… although FB is one cool playground). One day, I hope to become a full time artist and spend each and every day creating, designing, drawing, painting and modeling (with clay!).
Every year in September, Manly holds its Arts Festival. One year, we all embellished thongs or flipflops… Look out for my daisy thongs at the Ozzie Thong Fence. This exhitition was organised by the talented Angela van Boxtel. Every year we do something different… most of the time its related to recycling but its always guaranteed to be lots of fun!!! I love this amazing world of ours where we can live in one place and exhibit art in another that’s half way across the country!
If you see anything you like in my profile and would like it as a different product or would like a personalised product or calendar, please simply send me a bubblemail or if you’re not a member of the Redbubble Community, send me an email.
I thank you all for taking the time to have a look around at my portfolio of artwork and photography… I really do appreciate it. There’s always so much to see throughout Redbubble, so float around and enjoy your stay.

I have a LinkedIn as well, but don’t actually know what to use it for… if you have any clues, please enlighten me!!! Thanks :D
My portfolio at Behance another place to show off my artwork and photography. These guys have some amazing ideas and thoughts :D
I’m Georgiegirl or Jenny James here in RB but throughout the rest of the virtual universe I’ve had to call myself GeorgiegirlofRB (get it? GG of RB) as there are various other Georgiegirls around… But you know that if you find my adorable cow, then you’ll know it’s me!
My Mum, Rayjun, is also a bubbler and has found that now she’s retired, has plenty more time for her passions of painting, illustrating and writing stories and poetry.
