A Snapshot—Me & My Roots

Artist Bio–Me & My Roots

Welcome to my website! My name is Jennifer Breen. I am a digital artist and graphic designer that specializes in nature photography and customizable graphic designs.

As a child, I was raised in a small northern suburb of Port Perry, Ontario. From a young age, I had an interest for peering through a camera lens, writing, and reading about the natural world that surrounded me. I always felt "true to myself" when surrounded by the canopy of trees, streams, and forest creatures. Thus the inspiration for my business name, True2Nature Imagery.

I attended Durham College from 1990-1992 and obtained a 2 year diploma in Advertising Administration. I worked as an advertising compositor from 1992-1993. In 1994 I worked outside of my artistic field for ten years for Polygram Music/Universal Music Group until 2004. In 2006 I retrained in my artistic field and obtained a Digital Media Design Diploma In 2019.

When attending Durham Collage, one of my photography class assignments featuring a black and white image was featured on display inside the collage. I was the successful winner of the Howick Agricultural Society logo contest in 2019.

I currently live in Elmira where I have operated my home-based business since summer of 2021. I also extend my services in the form of logo creation, business swag, and designs for family gift purposes. On some of my prints and designs, I include my own profound poems and quotes, which are nature inspired.

I also create handmade custom nature-themed crafts using natural items. I have recently intermixed all of my creative skills to create a one-of-a-kind nature scented candle inspired by a location, imagination, and an image. I am always interested in partnerships and community connections with like-minded passions and purposes. My art is about connecting to other humans through the beauty and motivation nature brings.
