Home / People / Jennifer Mercede /

Hi there! My name is Jennifer Mercede. I grew up on the east coast, yet have been living on the west for the past fifteen odd years.  I currently live in Portland, Oregon and I love it!

My art is best described as street art meets toddler art meets fine art. I love scribbling, doodling, being silly and expressive with paint, markers, crayons and/or whatever is closest and suits the mood.  My goal is to get into ‘the zone’, the flow zone, where I can forget all else and surrender to the joy of creating. I am spontaneous in my creation and I love to think on a whim in a variety of expressions, including art, music, writing and play.

I enjoy working with kids and adults alike. I teach workshops occasionally throughout the year. I love to encourage people to free up, have fun and play in their art (and life).

I have the pleasure of working with great companies such as:

Oopsy Daisy
teNeues Publishing Group
