Jenny Pennywood

Waaay back in Issue No. 5/Fall 2011, in our “Conversation” feature, we visited with Keith Johnson—an art and antiques buyer for Anthropologie. When we asked him for his motto, he told us: “You only regret the things you leave behind. So many people tell me stories of things they wish they had bought.” My story of regret dates back a number of years and involves a painting by San Francisco artist Jen Garrido. I came across it at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery; I believe it was during one of their big warehouse sales. After much deliberation, I decided not to buy it—and I still regret that decision.

Since then, in addition to her fine art, Jen has started a line called Jenny Pennywood. It includes custom work (such as patterns devised for special events), as well as a products with motifs of her own design. The latter are a great, affordable way to own one of Jen’s creations. And these will tide me over until I’m able to acquire one of her original art pieces!
