Biography

JENNIFER DOHENY PETER

Multi-media artist Jennifer Doheny Peter is a self taught illustrator, greeting card and textile designer. After 15 years living in Portland, Oregon, where she started her greeting card business Urban Bird Designs, Jennifer moved back to her home town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Now in its 14th year, Urban Bird continues to be a successful line of clever greeting cards that Jennifer illustrates, markets and distributes to over one hundred retailers throughout the United States and Canada.
 
Using the wax/resist and dying process of batik, Jennifer also creates patterns for her unique paper batik lampshades and large panels.  The wax, dye and paper process results in beautiful illuminated works.
 
Jennifer has twice traveled the country in a travel trailer doing sales for Urban Bird.  She has owned and operated her own retail store in Bay View, Wisconsin. She consults with other artists about starting their own greeting card line, and teaches a greeting card seminar at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Jennifer has been featured on the television program Oregon Art Beat as well as in several newspaper and magazine articles. See more at www.urbanbirddesigns.com and www.ecobatik.com.
