Hey friend!

I'm Jenna Rainey.

I'm an artist, boy mom, published author, self-taught designer, and multi-faceted creative entrepreneur who is hell-bent on teaching everyone how to find their inner creative voice.

Side note: I'm really good at the business side, too. 

Ten years ago, I was just beginning my watercolor journey.

With no background in art, my creativity EXPLODED when I (accidentally) came across the medium of watercolor. As the world's most avid research and learner (no joke!), I became obsessed with learning everything I could about this medium, creativity and art in general. Fast forward to today, I've taught watercolor to THOUSANDS of students all around the globe in my art retreats, in-person workshops and virtual classes. My true passion and superpower is teaching. Let me show you!

i can help because i've been there.

The Studio

Our Dream Space.

Since buying our 1950s dream home in February of 2022, we've been working with Designer Jen of California Casa to remodel our dream art studio and home. Take a look at the transformation of our back house (aka studio) and get a peek into our world in this beautiful space.

Hideous, outdated cabinet boxes and hardware...
BYEEEE!!!

The old bathroom had the weirdest layout, including a two-foot step incline to get inside.

Ahhh, much better. Having open shelves throughout the space to display fun thrifted objects and art was a must! Also, how about that Zia Tile in the bathroom?!

Now!

We debated for weeks on whether or not to paint that ceiling white. I'm SO glad we did!

With sky lights and the added windows, I can paint and we can film our tutorials with gorgeous light!

The brass detail on the doors and the beautiful landscaping truly makes this space a full experience when you walk in.

We had custom built shelving, the movable paint island and hidden Murphy bed all done by MacBeth Millwork.

Bye Outdated Doors + Floors!
