Her songs are fresh and honest, falling somewhere between winking innocence and worldly detachment.”

— Waterbug Records

Jenny is an award-winning singer, songwriter, poet, and photographer.  She posts a photo and haiku on social media every day as #haikumilieu, and they are collected in the Haiku Milieu book, audiobook, soundtrack…and now, the Haiku Milieu YouTube Channel, with more than 75 songs written by artists inspired by her Haiku Milieu photos and haiku! 

When the world is not in quarantine, she has three monthly musical residencies for her own original music at FitzGerald's, Hey Nonny, and Friendly Tap.  She teaches songwriting at The Old Town School of Folk Music, creates an exclusive haiku and photo each week for the Sunday Haiku Milieu Email Club, and offers a live meditation Sunday through Friday mornings at 6:30 am via Zoom.
