Jennifer Nelson Artists Inc. Goes International at Heimtextil 2018

JNA Will Be In Frankfurt, Germany January 9 Through 12, 2018


Boston, MA. October 1, 2017:  Rapidly-growing art agency Jennifer Nelson Artists will be expanding their reach to an international audience when they exhibit at the upcoming Heimtextil event in Frankfurt am Main from the 9th to the 12th of January 2018. 

Heimtextil (say “Hime-tex-teal”) is the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles. This important show marks the first time JNA will be exhibiting outside the US.

“We’re actually very international,” says Jennifer Nelson, “We have been right from the start. We have many customers in Europe and even a couple of our artists live there. But this is the first time we’ll be crossing the Atlantic to go to a trade show. Needless to say, it’s very exciting.”

Since their launch on January 20, 2015, Jennifer Nelson Artists, Inc. has grown enormously. The expansion to their first European show, almost three years to the day since they began, is a good indicator of their quickly increasing sales volume. Jennifer says, “I have to thank my ten illustrators for our success. It’s really about the artwork of Miriam Bos, Rachel Grant, Rae Ritchie, Lauren Lowen, Anisa Makhoul, Jill Howarth, Bee Brown, Jennifer Orkin Lewis, Kelly Angelovic and Janna Krupinksi. They deserve the credit.”

Based in Boston, Jennifer Nelson does quite a bit of business by Skype and other online methods, but Heimtextil will be the first time meeting EU-based clients face-to-face. “That’s what makes this so fun,” says Jennifer, “especially if I can finally shake hands with people I’ve only known from email. I’m really looking forward to it.” To arrange an in-person meeting with Jennifer, attendees should make an appointment so no one gets left out.

Jennifer Nelson Artists, Inc. has been selling and licensing art every day since their launch. In just under three years they have worked with clients worldwide in stationery, home decor, bedding, publishing and more.

JNA’s artists create wonderful, adorable images which are then licensed to manufacturers primarily for surface design. Common objects are transformed into desirable art pieces thanks to these gorgeous artworks. Jennifer’s team of artists specialize in a hand-drawn style that’s quirky and feminine, and looks great on all sorts of goods from pajamas to tea towels to greeting cards. Jennifer’s philosophy is “Anything can be improved by adding art. Why not get more beauty into your life?” 

Jennifer Nelson Artists, Inc. is a Boston-based illustration agency representing ten talented artists whose work is available for purchase, licensing as well as commissions. JNA can be reached at (781) 643-2002 or by email. New work appears regularly on Instagram.
