Welcome to my blog! I'm Jen, the girl behind Red Parka Diaries. I live on the beautiful island of Tasmania with my husband Wade and our dog Benny. I'm an illustrator who dabbles in all sorts of creative arts and loves bright colours, vintage design, adventures, travelling, caravans, trees, elephants and everything handmade! I believe in marching to your own beat, living a life full of love and adventure, getting back to basics and being real.
Red Parka Diaries is a blog about art, craft and building a beautiful, creative, sustainable and original life. It's a place for me to share my own and others artwork, to document my journey and to share the things that inspire me. It's about what makes me come alive. I love connecting with creative, adventurous people all around the world and I hope you'll be one of them!
One of my favourite things in the whole world is coffee! So join me for a cuppa and a read, and please say hello one day - I'd love to meet you!
