Emerging Artist Program

Jenni Buffington is a full-time business owner and artist. Over the years, she has dabbled in various career options trying to fit the expectations of many that surrounded her. While there were countless beautiful lessons and stories on the way, there was always a serious piece missing. She will describe it as; a black and white drawing that severely needed coloring! With the encouragement and support of her family, she left her full-time job and pursued her core. Although difficult at times, along with the uncertainty of a steady income, she knew deep in her soul, she would regret it forever if she didn’t at least have a go!

Jenni has spent the last few years vending at shows throughout Pennsylvania, and in her downtime, she creates her wares instinctively from her imagination and her heart. Her art often begins with a blank canvas and she lets the energy… from life experiences, from people, from music, from everywhere… flow. As a child/teen/young adult, she LOVED visiting thrifts shops and found it thrilling that they were always changing, and there was ALWAYS a treasure to be found. She carried that idea into her business where you will rarely find the same product twice! She thrives on making unique and one-of-a-kind items often using broken or recycled pieces to create something brand new! She challenges herself constantly and strives to make items with meaning and purpose along with a price range for all budgets!

Jenni recognizes that her dream could not have become a reality without the love and support of her customers. She thanks you always, for believing
