Hello and welcome!

Thank you for visiting jenuine Ruby, where you'll find art, inspiration and handmade goods made with love in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm Jenny Portillo, mixed media artist and maker.  I'm so glad you're here!  

I love encouraging women to unleash their creativity, dream a little bigger, realize their worth + potential, and live the abundant lives God created them for.

Whether you've come to shop for artwork or unique handmade accessories and gifts, or to be inspired in your faith or creativity, welcome!  I hope you'll stay a while!

How can I encourage you today?

"... speak encouraging words to one another.  Build up hope so you'll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind."  -Thessalonians 5:11 The Message Bible

My hope is to inspire and encourage you as I share about creativity, faith and pursuing your goals and dreams. I know first hand how much courage it takes to embrace creativity.  I'm all too familiar with self doubt and feeling stuck.   However, I believe that the desires of your heart have purpose.  They're worth reaching for, even when it's scary, and I am here to cheer you on.

Even if you don't think you're creative, I believe there's a little bit of creativity in all of us.  Here you'll find some ideas to experiment with.  Don't worry about the end product... just be playful and see where the process takes you!

Do you struggle with finding time and motivation to pursue your dreams and goals? Me too!  It's a journey and a daily challenge/ adventure, and it's so worth it!  We often get so busy with tasks and schedules that we let our deepest desires get pushed back, behind our responsibilities and obligations.  What if you could find a way to do both?  

I'd love to send you my free productivity guide:  Cultivating Your Dreams.  It's full of practical ways to nurture your dreams and goals.  You'll be inspired with tips and actionable steps to make things happen.  You don't have to feel guilty pursuing what you really long for.  It's what makes you uniquely YOU!   The world needs you to embrace and go after your dreams with all your heart!
