After moving to Los Angeles, California in 2008, DFM was developed to accommodate the marketing and branding demands of the large local fashion and design industry. Never drawing a boundary between work and leisure, Jen constantly considers her project’s needs and finds inspiration in every situation. As an artist herself, she finds joy in making. Whether it is perfecting homemade marshmallows to crafting shoes, the possibilities are limitless to her. To the right is a small sampling of her personal work. →
