About Me


Please head over to my portfolio website, www.kjnstudio.com, to follow my process, see my entire new and legacy works, CV & "100 Day Projects."

I’m an INFP, an introvert,  artist at heartdesigner by trade and entrepreneur by default(much to my husband’s dismay who’s a finance guy and accountant!). I’m a passionate Anglophile, love history (esp British and ancient history), have to have my tea every morning with milk and sugar of course, love yoga (but need to be more disciplined in making it a practice), and never considered myself an “artist” until I was 28 years old. I’ve also realized that I am a gatherer, (read my post for definition), I’m obsessed with books and magazines, collecting all things visual and all things idea-related. I’m a mess at home with “reminder” piles of things to do, get done or finish (drives my husband NUTS). Definitely the chaos creative type that revels in freedom and going with the flow on a daily basis.

Met my husband when we were 15 years old and haven’t been with anyone else since – not sure that’s good or bad honestly (think right-brain vs. left-brain typical opposites!). BUT completely and utterly whipped by my 3 yr old son. He is my joy, my motivation, my soul and my heart. I revel in being his mother.

For all those astro folks, I’m on the double-cusp for both sun and rising (very unusual!) – a Scorpio/Libra, Scorpio/Libra with a Taurus moon . There’s LOTS of water in me but not so overwhelming that I’m drowning all the time. I love personality tests, investigating what makes people tick and what’s their motivation behind their actions, is an obsession of mine (Scorpion of course!), as well as myself. My strength’s finder test revealed my five top strengths are empathy, adaptability, connectedness, ideation and intellection. My fascinate test revealed that my primary trigger (or what motivates me with others) is passion. My secondary trigger is mystique and my dormant trigger (what least motivates me) is prestige

What certainly gets me up every morning is that search for a deeper connection to why I create and trying to find a reason for my soul’s purpose here in this lifetime. Somehow, being a woman, creativity is at the core of who I am. And I believe that’s so crucial for all women to recognize and cherish. How that expresses and translates into the world is the exciting part. And sharing it and learning from others is the essence of being a woman in this unique creative community. What a blessing!
