CLwJ 266: What if good enough was perfect? What if you let yourself learn along the way? That's what artist and designer Jeanne Oliver did as she rediscovered her creative self and built an authentic creative business.

Creative Living with Jamie (episode 266): Interview with Jeanne Oliver What if good enough was perfect? What if you let yourself learn along the way? That's what artist and designer Jeanne Oliver did as she rediscovered her creative self and built an authentic creative business. Jeanne is married to her dream maker, Kelly, and the mother to three funny and creative kiddos. She home schools her children even though she has tried to get out of it a few times. You can often find her hiking in her state of Colorado, making creative messes in her studio and finding an excuse to have another cup of coffee. She speaks and teaches all around the country and sometimes she even gets to cross the pond. She was told that she needed to find that one thing but she doesn’t like listening to directions so she embraces many loves and that has given her a sweet mash up of family, art, teaching and design. Connecting with women and sharing that each of us has been creatively made is one of her passions.
