About :: Jenifer Hanen
I, Jenifer Hanen (aka Ms. Jen), am a mobile and web designer/developer by trade, a photographer, moblogger and professional art weirdo for the love of it.
My art & design career started in the high chair with my love of personal food art and food wall art at the age of 11 months. My love for photography took off when given a Nikon FG-1 film camera for my 15th birthday. Many concerts, birds, trees and people photos later, I almost always carry my Nokia camera phone - all the better to moblog with - and on occasion my Nikon D800 DSLR camera. I am is currently moblogging with a Nokia N8 camera phone (see below for my list of camera's used to take the photos on this blog).
I am fond of all things 1945 to 1965, esp. the hairdos, fashion, and art. I love dark hair with purple or pink streaks in it, red lipstick, capri pants, small shoes, and abstract expressionist & color field paintings. A good mobile | web site should say it all in color, clean typography, photos and a minimalist aesthetic.

The photos I capture with my camera phone are sent up to this blog right after they are taken. I love the constraints of a camera phone and the immediacy of posting the photos while on the go.
