Jessica Dempsey | Creative Director

Hey, I’m Jessica. Jess, if you’re feeling friendly and Jessi if you want me to assume you’ve known me since birth.

I currently live in the small town of Polo, IL. I love the simplicity and quiet of our rural home.

In 2019 I look a leap of faith, leaving my cozy design job to work from home and start a family. Shortly thereafter, Tanya brought me on as her creative director, allowing me the freedom to not only work from home and start a family but to really feel fulfilled in my design aspirations for the first time in a while.

Two months after the pandemic hit, I became a boy mom with my first child, Miles. It has been a wild journey and I’m so thankful to have the ability to be home with him, and cannot wait to share all of my favorite things with him as he grows.

When I am not designing with my girl Tanya or chasing after my now very mobile son, I love to spend time with my little family. In recent months (due to the unending snow) this consists of sipping a strong cup of coffee (I am a bit of an admitted coffee snob) and snuggling up on the couch to enjoy a trivia game show with my husband and bulldog.

When the weather is nice, we love traveling, spending time in nature, and camping . I’m an aspiring vegan, a novice vintage jewelry collector, and a home decor enthusiast.. and I’ll never turn down a Wes Anderson film or Buffy reruns!
