HOW WE GOT STARTED
Meet Jenny Reeger, the designer behind The Local Artists Co.® Jenny’s love of modern calligraphy began in 2008 when she began working for a Lubbock-based professional artist; her love of graphic design began in 2013 when she was working as Director of Communications for a nonprofit company. In December 2015, she decided to combine her design skills and open an Etsy shop with hand-lettered goods and stationery. The following year, she collaborated with a local winery to teach a calligraphy workshop and the first workshop sold out. Word-spread and she found herself with a full-time business of teaching calligraphy workshops + selling goods! She started traveling to teach her workshops and in 2018, she decided to open a storefront in Lubbock, Texas for her workshops and high-quality goods. Many locals started asking to host baby showers, wedding parties and to use the space to teach their own workshops; because of the requests, the Local Artists Co. was born! She not only wanted to teach workshops of her own, but to provide a space that empowers other creatives + small businesses to get creative! She is passionate about spreading creativity, encouraging others to step into their creative skills and make memories with those we love + serve.
