We asked Jen:
Where do you live?
I live about 30 miles east of Colorado Springs in a rural area, also known as The Prairie
Can you tell us a little about your family?
I have been married almost thirteen years to my husband Jason. We have one animal loving daughter named ,Riley, who is eleven.
Do you work outside the home?
Nope, i have a full time job right here on the homestead!
I get up early to do chores! First i feed the horses and then let them out into the pasture for the day. Next comes feeding time for our thirteen goats...after that I fill all my wild bird feeders then head inside to feed the dogs and cats and for some coffee and computer time! Around 8 am I head back out and clean the horses stalls then I am back in by 9 to get Riley going on her homeschooling. We are usually done by lunchtime and then its back outside to either paint orders, work with animals, do yardwork, or run errands! Evening chores start at about 4 o clock. Horses come in and get fed, as do the goats, chickens, dogs and cats! Phew! Then its dinner time for us humans and little relaxation!

Do you have any hobbies? What do you like to do when you're not creating?
I have always loved horses and love the time I have to play with them. I have been studying Parelli Natural Horsemanship for about ten years now. Its all about communication with horses in a language that comes natural to them. ALot of people refer to it as "horse whispering". It has made a tremendous difference in my life and my relationship with my horses.I also enjoy hiking with the dogs and hanging out with the goat herd!
