Artist Jen Garrido And Her Adorable Mini-Me, Jemma Bee

All moms wear lots of hats. But Jen Garrido might wear a few more than the rest of us. The fine artist and S.F. resident not only creates stunning acrylic-and-watercolor masterpieces, she also produces quirky-cool printed tea towels, napkins, clutches, and other accessories under the name Jenny Pennywood, more affordable works of art on paper under the name Jennifer Jenny Jen Jen, and is on the verge of launching a children’s wear line, See Sun, with her friend and fellow printmaker Lena Corwin. Oh, and there might be a womenwear line in the works, too. Of course, another role she’s wholly dedicated to is raising her incredibly spirited 3 1/2 year old, Jemma Bee. Here, the many monikered mom invites us into her Bernal Heights home (and her studio a short drive away) to talk about balancing it all.

    Only a couple of barefoot pictures for this mommy. Her pedicure is lovely and her toes look to be in a nice proportional length to each other.
