-the owner, operator, artist and creator behind Mama Jene Designs. Her obsession with art and infatuation with stationery is what brought Mama Jene Designs into existence. With it, she’s able to turn her wild and obtrusive, imaginative thoughts into magical, sometimes practical works of art.
“The chaos of art combined with organized planning? Of course I’d obsess over it.”Amanda
Amanda’s passion for the arts started at an early age – from the time she could hold a pencil in her left hand – and has burned brightly ever since. Now she works as an illustrator and designer based in North Texas specializing in character illustration, graphic design, and planner stationery!
“It was a lot of hard work, and I had a lot to learn, but I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to turn my ideas into stationery that people actually use. It’s an amazing feeling seeing your work loved and used by other people.”Amanda
Amanda happened upon the planner world accidentally through a Facebook group invite. What she thought would be a fun hobby on the side turned into a full time gig and full blown business. After much trial and error, and lots of hard learned lessons, Amanda’s planner shop blossomed.
While the MJD planner shop has taken a break from physical products, you can still find all your favorite characters as digital designs on the site.
Growing a business as a creative, is hard. There is so much to learn, so many skills to develop as you get your business off the ground. This isn’t always easy for creatives like us, which is why Amanda is dedicating so much of her time helping others like her grow and develop their digital presence and online shops.
She hopes to use her knowledge, skills, and experience to inspire other small business owners to pursue their dreams.
