Asheville Artist Jenny Ellis
Asheville, North Carolina
Jenny lives in Asheville, NC. With a cumulative experience of over 30 years in the fabric arts, design and furniture fields, she has blended her skill sets into creating Sittin’ Pretty, LLC.
The art of turning discarded, broken chairsinto amazingly new and fresh furnishings has always been pleasing to her. Jenny loves the interesting lines, hand carved legs and arms - details that you can’t get today at big box stores. These old chairs carry silent histories with whispers of elegance and grace. Restoring old chairs has become her passion. Her professional career in high-end dressmaking shines through in the details and designs of her pieces. And now she can be in style and “Green” at the same time.
Jenny enjoys bringing new life back into chairs and home furnishings, adding personality and an element of surprise where there once was none. Lately, adding New Frames to her line has been just as fun of a hunt. And she does her own Upholstery.
