Jennifer Moore is a textile and surface designer and owner of the design studio monaluna. Jennifer began painting at the age of 2, when her father built her an easel from masonite and 2x4s, and introduced her to the joys of poster paint. By four, she had started to dabble in fashion design, creating doll clothes from her mother’s sewing scraps and once, notably, from a nearly-finished dress her mother was making.
After studying anthropology and design at the University of Minnesota, Jennifer went on to work in several aspects of design, first as a toy designer for Manhattan Toy, then as a surface designer at Target, and most recently as a decorative accessories designer at Pottery Barn Kids,
Now based in Oakland, CA, Jennifer lives in a sunny apartment with her husband and several imaginary pets. She still loves to paint and sew, but also enjoys finding creative inspiration through writing, gardening, photography and the culinary arts. When she’s not “working” (though it rarely feels like work), Jennifer can be found tending her tiny garden, wandering through the local farmer’s market, perusing the bay area bookstores, and admiring Oakland’s plentiful urban wildlife. Jennifer loves to travel, and draws much of her inspiration from trips both near and far.
