Hi there! My name is Jennifer Mercede. I grew up on the east coast, yet have been living on the west for the past fifteen odd years. I currently live in Portland, Oregon and I love it!

I am spontaneous in my creation and I love to think on a whim in a variety of expressions, including art, music, writing and play.
