Jennifer Hoffman is a mixed media artist, designer, storyteller and founder of ecohaven project (2010), which has evolved into haad studio. Haad Studio is a platform for curiosity - exploring concepts in art, architecture and design - their intersections. Jennifer creates beautiful, meaningful and mindful concepts through her love of art and design. Her inter-disciplinary approach explores conceptual thinking solutions for interiors, space planning, installations, brand development/identity, creative direction, design consulting, collaborations, mixed media art/photography and design. Jennifer received her BFA in Mixed Media studio art from The Art Academy of Cincinnati and graduated with highest honors from the CIDA accredited program at Harrington College of Design with a BFA in Interior Design. Her experience volunteering with Migratory Bird Rescue and Recovery from building strikes in downtown Chicago inspired her to start birding which informs the work for Bird Who Loves Birds.
