Get to know me a little bit better
Hi, I’m Jenniffer!
I’m the creative blogger + digital artist for Life is Messy and Brilliant. I started my blog in 2017 when I was in my senior of college. I was studying Biomedical Sciences but part of me was craving art.
Long story short, I failed a biology class which made me feel like a failure. I needed to find an outlet to get my confidence back. One day in 2017 I sat in my office chair, opened my computer, and started to create printables in Microsoft Word.
Quotes I live by:
- “The mirror is my only competition”
- “I’m not scared of a future that hasn’t happened yet”
- “Treat others the way you want to be treated”
- “Ask, the worst thing you can get is a no.”
- “A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere.”
