Her father was from central Mexico and her mother was Yaqui Indian, which is a tribe of Mexican Indians living in Arizona. Jennie came from humble beginnings in Tucson, Arizona and moved east with her husband in the early 70’s to begin her new life together. Although Jennie has always embraced customary American ideals, She tries to keep her traditional Hispanic and Yaqui values alive by sharing her spirit through her art.
Although she taught Spanish, Photography and Art which was her profession for 21 years, She left teaching to pursue her real passion; creating art. She works in several different mediums, including oils, acrylics, watercolors, pencils and pastels. She has participated in many art shows and has taught Native American Cultural Diversity at the Virginia Museum. Jennie does both gallery art and commission work and enjoys all mediums.
