Hi, my name is Jenny James, an artist, graphic designer, publisher, illustrator, art teacher and photographer, living in a beautiful beachside (nearly), southern suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. I share my home with my son and our adorable black and white cat, Socks. I’m also known as Georgiegirl (obviously!), Art by Jenny, JJ, GG, GeorgiegirlofRB :)
My graphic design career began over 20 years ago at The Adelaide Advertiser as an ENS Compositor, then continued with Country Bumpkin Publications (embroidery and craft magazines/books). I have a Diploma of Multimedia which was fun to study and gave me an understanding of how much work goes into websites and animations (which I loved).
Over the years have designed newspapers, advertising, all forms of printed media, books and magazines as well as sewing, craft and embroidery patterns. My ‘work’ website is Art by Jenny and has a small selection of designs in my portfolio page.
I love arts and crafts – anything and everything!!! So, whenever possible, I’ll be drawing, painting (digitally and traditionally), creating ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), scrapbooking, animating with drawings, clay and the computer, and floating about my favourite virtual playgrounds (Redbubble, Facebook and Pinterest)… and taking photos!
I love to share and teach arts and crafts – the happiness that people feel (that I get to see) from being creative is incredible and I am so privileged to be part of that. I call my workshops Something on Saturday … we have fun being creative with paints, papers, pens, pencils and lots of other arty crafty goodness!!! Life is simply awesome :)
I have a blog called A Life Less Ordinary – its where I chat about my extraordinary artistic life, my favourite things, arty stuff I find, work I’ve done and anything else… sometimes I even chat about graphic design!!! To make life simple for all of us, my blog and journal will be similar each time I post… so you don’t have to leave RB to catch up on my drama :D
FYI – If you would like any of my artwork as a different product or would like it personalised, please simply send me a bubblemail or if you’re not a member of the Redbubble Community, send me an email.
Thanks ever so much for checking out my RB gallery of artwork and photography. I really do appreciate it. There’s lots of eye candy throughout Redbubble, if you don’t know where to start, put your favourite colour or thing in the search … Enjoy!
My other virtual worlds to share with you all are

My Mum, Rayjun or ElizaJay as she’s often known, 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.
