Handmade 2011 featuring Jen Oaks

Jen Oaks is a Berkeley, Ca illustrator who specializes in comely, comforting, not-too naughty pin up girls, and she has a variety of printed work available in her Etsy store. All have great colors and irresistible, inviting expressions. If your tastes run a bit darker, and/or strange, check out her awesome Twin Peaks button packs. Each pack features a TP character and a relevant quote.Jen also has a great way with animals and wildlife, and this section of her shop has stuff that would be great for the younger art lover on your list, or parents furnishing a tweenager's ( or younger child's ) room. Check her stuff out!
