hi, I'm...


Jennifer Schwartz and lover of all things art. I'm also a Freelance Creative Director with a background in Art Direction and worked 10+ years in the business.  

I recently took 4 months off to travel and spend quality time with the people who created me. I found secret beaches in Corsica, saw my first opera in Rome, climbed the 213 Positano steps, ate pizza in Naples where it was created, fell in love with Florence again, and trained for my second career as a professional beach bum on Martha's Vineyard... it was a summer I'll never forget.

I was honored to be quoted in "Forbes Magazine" about mindfulness in the workplace and an avid daily meditator and retreat goer. 

Born and bred in Boston, MA, and somehow I don't have a hint of an accent. I've been in NYC a decade now pretty sure I've earned the title of "New Yorker."

I cook without recipes and have a passion for baking. I love concocting new creations in my kitchen and hosting dinner parties so I don't eat it all alone. 

I'm always in search of an art project, from crafting, to jewelry making, to recreating classic children's book covers in watercolor (see photos)...these are the things that joyfully keep me up at night. 

I'm a creative with a strategic mind and specialize in helping companies solve problems. I'd love to get to know you and work together, thanks for checking out my site! 


 


When I'm talking to a co-worker, I give them my full attention...reminding myself to slow down. I notice that when I give my team my full presence, they are more productive and successful as well. Staying present is a choice.
