From a young age, I have always loved flowers. From the fresh flowers planted in my mom’s garden, to the flowers printed on my dresses as a little girl, I was always drawn to the colors, the shapes, and the happiness they brought to others. I would paint endless amounts of flowers from a young age, and have carried over my love for them as an adult.
For the past 16 years, I have been a buyer for a women’s clothing boutique and have naturally always been drawn to any floral and embroidered pieces. However, there have always been small changes I envision to make it the perfect piece I was looking for. Whether it was a top I wish came in different colors, or a perfect colored dress that wasn’t the right silhouette, there was always something I wanted to change to make it my own. I soon realized that I had sparked a dream in my heart to do just that.
My husband’s family lives in Mexico City, and after countless trips to Central America, I fell in love with the culture, the colors, and the beauty the country offers. These trips have inspired me to create vibrant pieces that tell the story of both my love for flowers and the vibrant Central American culture.
For the past 10 years, I have prayed about J Marie blooming and know that I could not be here without the family and friends that I hold most dear to my heart. Each piece is named after someone who has brought a great amount of joy to my life. My hope is to share the same joy with you through J. Marie.
Love, Jennifer Marie
