If they happen to be local talented people, that makes things even more awesome!! That’s why today’s interview is so exciting! I’m so happy Jenny agreed to do the interview, she is one very talented lady! So without further delay, meet Jenny!
1. Tell us a little about yourself:
Jenny Kiker From Charlotte, NC. I’ve been in Florida for almost 5 years now. No human babies, but one fur baby and many green babies. My cat is named Inka, after Inka Essinghigh. My green babies are made up of innumerable ferns, succulents and cacti. I also have a 6 foot fiddle fig tree, a bonsai, and lots of Monsteras!
2. When did you start the Living Pattern brand and what are the services you offer?
Living Pattern is in its second year. We offer artist prints that are fresh, modern and organic. Original art is also available as well as commissioned sets.
3. Who makes up the Living Pattern crew?
Living Pattern is made up of myself and my boyfriend Chris. He is a graphic/ web designer.
4. What do you find most challenging about running your own business?
I think the answer is simple: Everything. Not the fact that any one task is too difficult, it’s just the fact that, between the two of us, we touch every corner of the business. From, the art itself, to packaging, to shipping, to finance, to PR, to marketing, to customer service – all while things continue to grow as well.
5. What is the most rewarding thing about running your company?
The most rewarding thing has been the response! We’ve been featured by Design*Sponge, A Beautiful Mess, and Luxe Magazine and have been building a solid group of supports on Instagram – @livingpattern. So much encouragement and positivity from fans will really put a smile on a girl’s face 🙂
6. What do you do on your days off?
Chris and I don’t take many. We skip going out to focus on our dreams. Our friends must think we don’t like them anymore but that’s the price admission. The time we take away consists of trips to the mountain and being in nature. Even then, we are always scouting for more intricate and saturated definitions of what “Living Pattern” is.
8. Who is your favorite Superhero and why?
Poison Ivy (We had a feeling on that one 😃)
