Hi and thanks for taking the time to visit my About page!

I find that one of the most difficult things about creating a website is writing the 'About Me' section. Website 'About' pages can often be either long and boring or corny so I'll try to keep mine as brief as I can. 🙂

I've been creating art in one form or another since before I can remember. Drawing, painting on canvases - that's my 'Happy Place'. For the past 21 years I have enjoyed a career as a makeup artist / hair stylist working in television, on short films, editorial, weddings, formals and every other occasion that requires a makeup artist. I'm still running and enjoying my makeup business after all these years. Helping to make women feel pretty is a sensational way to earn your keep.

All the while though, I've been painting and selling my original art. Portraits mostly but I enjoy painting a variety of subjects in many styles. In 2012 I started to experiment with digital art and design and found a brand new passion. It began when my husband and I decided to make our wedding completely DIY! Other than booking the wedding celebrant, we did the whole event ourselves. From the invitations right through to the food and everything in between. I enjoyed designing and constructing all the wedding printables and our guests loved them. One guest wanted to place an order for some personalised chocolate wrappers, similar to those I'd made for our wedding guests the very next week!

Thus began my new found passion for digital design and printable templates for all of life's special occasions. I will be uploading brand new designs for your special occasions here on Jenny Gollan Designs website regularly and there will be lots of FREE downloads for you to print and cut.

Custom designs are always welcome and I'm more than happy to help you with your party themes.

You can keep up to date with my latest designs, DIYs and be the first to hear about the free downloads by Subscribing. Costs nothing to subscribe and who knows .... you might just spot something you love to make your party planning a little less time consuming.

Let me know if there's a customised design I can help you with.
