jenifer owns sprout studio & the gleaner project – a love for pretty, lovely, handmade items joined with all things vintage makes her a happy lady. she loves to create in just about all ways; she’s a knitter, a canner/jammer/pickler, a collagist, a self proclaimed image taker & maker, a clayer, a draw-er, a painter, a semi-seamstress, a jewelry maker, & a baker, but unfortunately, just not a candlestick maker.
jenifer has been teaching in various settings for over 15 years. she’s taught at camps, workshops, studios, conferences, & in many classrooms to ages 5 years old to 70+. she often teaches at makeshift society in hayes valley in san francisco & numerous other bay area studios & centers. sometimes she teaches out of the comfort of her butchertown home.
she currently is a kindergarten through 8th grade visual arts teacher in downtown san francisco. in 2014, she was awarded the herbst excellence in teaching award. even though she has a southern heart & hails from the southeast originally, she feels lucky to call san francisco her home.
