White Tulip Designs was born of its owner, Jennifer’s, lifelong love of the visual arts. As a teenager, she collected colorful children’s books for inspiration on gray days. In high school she loved to sketch houses, random buildings and anything structural and would even tinker with small home designs she found in the newspaper, making subtle “improvements” to the plans. Today, she regularly snaps series of photos while shopping so she can review her catalog of ideas while in her studio.
A trained artist, Jennifer started her formal “creative” education in interior design and after much soul-searching, found that working graphically on a smaller scale was a much better fit.
White Tulip Designs’ invitation suites reflect Jennifer’s passion for painting and custom work. She loves that the stationery industry has evolved in such a way that each invitation is a work of art – one that is uniquely delivered straight into its recipient’s mailbox. She believes that innovation and perfection of craft should go hand in hand in every project and loves that each new project brings new challenges and creative opportunities.
After spending a few years creating designs and producing pieces exclusively for the wedding industry, Jennifer decided to create the Tallulah and Gage line in order to have a way to create more whimsical and fun items specifically for children and young families. Jennifer has been a featured designer on Zazzle, and has designed award-winning hand-painted invitation suites.
A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires. -Hedy Lamarr
