Jenny Sweeney’s Heart-full Art & Love Quotes
Over the years, we have admired the work of Jenny Sweeney. Her artful, soulful, playful style extends to illustrations, cards, paintings, hand-lettered quotes, sculpture, jewelry, and interior design.
Her unique whimsical style encourages others to play, be silly, be vulnerable, and be hopeful.
The Artist at Home
A couple of years ago, I visited Jenny’s one-of-a-kind, happy bright blue Tudor home in Chicagoland.
Remember this tour of her colorful creations and wild child designs at home?
So much unexpected!
And so many surprises.
Ohhhhhhh, the sunshine!
If her art work looks familiar, maybe that is because her greeting cards and gifts were carried in oodles of shops (15,000!) around the country.
In fact, she even designed a line for Target…
and was the creative genius behind Mariska Hargitay’s professional and personal projects.
Jenny Sweeney created illustrations and color palettes for an established makeup brand,
and her art appears alongside Lisa Congdon’s in:

So no matter how much the humble artist argues she aint a big deal, don’t get it twisted.
After she built a busy enterprise, Jenny down-sized her company.
She began exploring new creative avenues and began spiritual journeying.
Remember when she set up a pop-up art sale at my friend’s house and arrived in her ‘Free Up Bus?’
I know you will want to discover her limited runs of totally unique paintings and art prints,
and the unexpected (check out this before/after):
Books still make great gifts for tender hearted kids of any age.

1971 Love Song With Heart
And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
Love & Favorite Songs
Do you know your partner’s favorite song? Your best friend’s or your kid’s? If not, discover it soon. Because it can be a way for you to feel close to their heart even when miles and time separate you. Know what I mean?
My mama’s favorite song is “The Prayer,” and every time I hear the beautiful chords play in the introduction, all at once I’m with her in spirit. The notes remind me of her love, her laugh, her tears, her mercy, and her amazing heart.
MUSIC is a sort of quantum magically mysterious connector which transcends barriers including space and time.
I pray we’ll find your light/And hold it in our HEARTS/When stars go out each night/Remind us where you are…

A Potted Plant: by Hafiz
I pull a sun from my coin purse each day.
And at night I let my pet, the moon
Run freely into the sky meadow.
If I whistled,
She would turn her head and look at me.
If I then waved my arms,
She would come back wagging a marvelous tail
There are always a few men like me
In this world
Who are house-sitting for God.
We share His royal duties:
I water each day a favorite potted plant
Ask the Friend for love.
Ask Him again.
For I have learned that every heart will get
What it prays for
