About Jenn Hales

My name is Jenn Hales,and I’m a designer and artist living in Raleigh,NC. I grew up in an earth-sheltered home near Apex,N.C.

As a child I spent my time reading books and examining bumble-bees in the front yard. My family didn’t have a TV, so I drew the creatures I saw in nature and in my imagination. Later, I moved to Ohio where I graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in industrial design.

I’ve worked as a toy designer at Hasbro, a footwear designer at Columbia sportswear,a design researcher at Insight Product Development, and a welder in the art and scenic department at SAS institute.

I run Patina by Jenn Hales, an illustration and design studio that emphasizes locally made design and sustainability.
