Hello! My name is Jenny and it’s wonderful to meet you. I grew up in East Tennessee and graduated with a BFA from the University of Tennessee. Go Vols! I met my husband, Nathan, during our time as collegiate runners. We love calling Knoxville our home and raising our two boys, Caleb and Noah. My passion for art and creativity runs deep. I translated my love for good design into a full time business in 2013 when I opened my lifestyle shop, The Back Porch Mercantile in the Bearden area. You can follow my adventures in life and shopkeeping at @shopbpm and @xoxo_jennyleigh on Instagram.
