Jhenne Tyler "JT" Beauford




Bay Area, California


Born in Maryland but raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Jhenne Tyler spends her time immersed in all things creative; art and literature being her favorite. At twenty-six, J.T. already has a host of titles under her belt; freelance artist, blogger, and recent UC Berkeley Media Studies Grad among them.

When it comes to art, she considers visual diversity a chief priority, and is big on advocating positive and varied representation within the media; both within her own work and media at large.

She loves to marry that passion, drive, and creativity with the fun of freelance, and brings her own brand of versatility and vivaciousness to any project she works on.
