madebygirl's jennifer ramos
While many of you may be familiar with the works of Jennifer Ramos - the creative force behind MadeByGirl - you might not know that she started out working with furniture - rather than her more well-known posters. Also, Jennifer's passionate about the environment. As she says, "we're all environmentalists, we all love beautiful sunny days and clean beaches".
What five words best describe you? Driven, ambitious, honest, loyal and fun.
What's your proudest achievement? When I made the cover of The View - the local paper here in Henderson, Nevada.
Who inspires you? Anyone who is truly passionate about what they do.
What are you passionate about? My work. I'm also passionate about LOVE.
What's the best lesson you've learnt? That no matter how rough things get, you have to keep moving forward.
Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? I love music so much, I would like to meet Sheryl Crow and sing with her on stage. Even though I'd be the unknown, the experience would be inspiring.
What are you excited about? Exhibiting and launching my line at the National Stationary Show in NYC this May. I will be in booth 1842 for those interested.
What's next? I'm hoping to launch a lot more interesting & unique cards, as well as prints. We are hoping to print the posters on recycled paper too because previously we aren't able to. However, we are offsetting by donating a percentage of sales to stopglobalwarming.org.
