My name is Jen Hardwick, I'm a mixed media artist living and creating in Seattle. I specialize in handmade cards, collages and paintings.

I try to spend as much of my "free time" being creative. Whether it's helping my son with an art project or doing something for myself.

I knew from an early age that I wanted to be an artist. I can't remember a time when art wasn't part of my everyday life.

I like to try different things and I dabble in a lot of different mediums.
I have worked in acrylic paint, pencil, charcoal, clay, pen & ink, watercolors, and oils. Some of my past work includes; wearable pins, painted shoes, furniture and pottery.

My most recent creations are mixed metal collages. I love reusing materials and found objects to create one of a kind pieces.

My inspiration comes from many things around me: family, friends, nature, books, fashion and music. My art is my soul; it’s as essential to my life as breathing.

I hope that you get as much joy in looking at my work as I do in creating it.
