"We were in business 12 years and no large company ever found us. Our previous ecommerce site was a mess, badly designed and hard to find info. 

She organized info, provided search engine strategies, a total facelift and trained me to use it. 

Always a pleasure working with Jenny. Brightest, most energetic person I know. Fun too. She’s thorough, but results worth it!” ~Mark Martinez, graphic artist and designer

People Are Talking

"YOU are THE Punk Rock Goddess Photographer!" ~Rodney Bingenheimer, the "Mayor of Sunset Strip."

"You would be a great teacher because you have a plethora of knowledge" ~ Kimra Luna, BTBY, Freedom Hackers Galaxy

"Your work made me realize that every show was an EVENT, a moment outside "real" life that should and could be internalized and immortalized. Making the ugly look good and the good look ugly. And the music didn't suck either." ~Erich Dye, Facebook

"Great pix. Jenny you are more than an artist. You caught the whole passion of those times. You should be world famous with all the financial security and recognition that brings." ~Liz Winchell, an early LA punk rocker

“We were contacted by a large organization with press, radio and other media coverage within first month after Jenny Lens redesigned our ecommerce site. 

Our site rarely displayed by Google til she performed her magic! I couldn’t buy media coverage like that for what I paid Jenny.” ~Mark Martinez, graphic artist and designer

Compare cost to the Colleges and Universities where I taught comparable programs

  • UCLA Extension charges from $979 to $1075. I taught Illustrator at UCLA Extension.
  • Santa Monica College charges hundreds, depending if resident or not. I taught Photoshop at SMC. Gave my notes to teacher who replaced me when I left, who gave them to his replacement.
  • Comparable costs at other colleges, universities and computer training centers where I taught (under worse conditions for teachers and students, which is why I’m teaching online!)
  • You can learn more real world situations than what I was forced to teach at colleges, and for a fraction of the cost!
  • Why so affordable? 
  • I don’t want cost to be a barrier to YOUR Empowerment, Growth and Joy. 
  • That’s why.
