Who is Jennefer Kempenaar?
Im a mixed media artist, in a fashiondesigner body. (Yep, I said it!) I cant live without my creativity, I need it! I am very thankful that I can do what I love, and love what I do.
I completed my study at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. After my study I had several jobs in the fashion/design industry that engage my experience and versatility. Such as:
- Creative project management
- Allround fashion managent buying/sales
- Graphic designer; Adobe Illustrator/photoshop (dtp, artwork and more)
- Fashion illustrator/designer
- Personal branding
- Allround fashion styling
The creative proces of a project. Each design has to fit a specific set of requirements, so it's only natural that the process to figure out what client needs to produce an effective output is based on a logical flow. The part of making an idea, absolute or concrete, that is the fun part.Without a creative process, you are shooting at a target in the dark
Fierce things for fabulous people... My personal creative style is fashionable, feminine, trendy with sparkle of sexiness. In the past few years I challenge myself that I have to be better with every new design/project. They say; 'you are as good as your last work... " My goal is that my creations communicate on a fierce way with his audience. I think it is magical, how creativity works... One moment there is nothing, and the other moment there is something. I love to create! It is my passion.
What is normal?
I don’t know.
I teach myself
“Life isn’t about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself”. Self study is the key; I challenge myself to become better and an expert in what I like to do most.
I love to go out dancing Cuban Salsa and killing it on the dance floor in a fashionable outfit.
Where my family is. I am a true family person, born and raised in a small town, in the Netherlands. I love my family very much, but I also like to have my space, and do so by travelling and exploring the world. Life is supposed to be an adventure, right?
I really, really don’t like to exercise. But thankfully I am vain, so I keep my body in shape with my daily workout in the morning (or afternoon depends what time I wake up).
Coco Chanel: “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different”
Oprah Winfrey: “I am a woman in process. I am just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull”
Bob Proctor: “It doesn’t matter where you are. You are nowhere compared to where you can go”
What does F.I.E.R.C.E. means?
Yes I do use the word 'fierce' a lot. So what does 'fierce' actually means? F.I.E.R.C.E means: Fabulous Inspirational Empowered Remarkable Creative Energy (I made this up of course). In the Urban scene it means Powerful! A word used to empower a moment, feeling, appearance, or energy. ”The word FIERCE gives me a powerful feeling”. From the inside as well as the outside, but most importantly, the mind, cause there is where it all begins.
