Meet the Designer!
Hello! I’m Jenni - the maker and designer behind Nollie Bean. I have always felt compelled to create. Even as a young girl, I would draw, sew, and make jewelry any chance that I found.
My love for fabric started when I was quite young. I dabbled with sewing off and on throughout the years making skirts, purses, totes and pouches, but - like many other quilters - I made my first quilt when my son was quite young and was HOOKED! You mean I get to use how much fabric and all the pretty colors!?!?
Quilting and pattern design also lets me exercise one of my other favorite things…math! :)
I’ve always been drawn to the natural world around me - born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, I find inspiration in the colors, plant life and wildlife in the surrounding desert.
My goal is to inspire others to make functional works of art that bring delight and provide a sense of fulfillment.
Fun Fact: The inspiration behind the name comes from my son and the best doggie ever!
