For Owner and Artist of Jenn’s Resinn, Jenna Lesperance, her primary mission when it comes to putting her art out to the world is allowing people to express their creativity through her.
While growing up, Lesperance and her mom always did arts and crafts with her sister, and as for as long as she could remember, she has always loved doing anything where she was able to put her creative mind to the test.
“The resin art that I currently do started as Christmas gifts for my family, I made an ashtray for my brother-in-law and a set of four coasters for my dad and stepmom, and my grandparents,” she shares. “Making resin pieces and knowing that people are putting their trust in me to make a custom piece for them really inspires me and pushes me more to keep doing what I love. Also, seeing people’s reactions and emotions when they receive their order makes my heart happy.”
With her art offering something that someone could love and cherish for life, Lesperance explained that even though she just makes custom resin art, her favourite part of having a small business is allowing people to express their creativity.
“Every piece I make has love, care, patience, and thought put into it. My art is here to offer people something they might not be able to find in a big box store, whether it’s from a dog tag to a heart dish, or even a wine bottle and glass holder,” she says. “By being in the small business community for such a short time, I’ve discovered Windsor is very supportive, and to be able to contribute to this community is an amazing feeling.”
Sharing that her art represents her passion for creating, Lesperance states that being given the ability to customize pieces for people and seeing their expressions when they see the final results keeps her going.
“What my art represents about me is the different types of styles I come up with. I am a person who has a hard time with routines, and I prefer to change my routine more than often, so having that type of lifestyle shows in my art because each piece I create is different from the next. There are so many different ways to work resin, so I try to exceed my limits to the best of my ability,” she says.
Describing herself as loyal, genuine, and creative, Lesperance said what empowers her the most is the many boss women in her life who she strives to be like.
“The amazing people in Windsor who are a part of the art or small business community inspire me. The close friends I have made through this community, the people in my daily life who tell me they are proud of me and want to see me succeed with my business, every single person who has ever placed an order with me mean the world to me. That is what keeps me going,” she said. “What keeps me going through my days is my amazing support system of a boyfriend, the support I have from my close friends, the fact that I have come so far from a mental place that I did not enjoy being in and that through my art I can express myself and use it as a hands-on therapy.” If you’re interested in ordering a custom piece by Jenna, check out her Facebook page at Jenn’s Resinn or her Instagram @jennsresinn.
