J'Nae's Story

Hey! I’m J’Nae, designer behind Cheriss & Company. Before I started Cheriss & Company I, like so many women, was caught up in a whirlwind of busyness, until a few unexpected detours forced me to slow down.

On the outside things looked great - a blossoming career, a promising relationship and a loving circle of family and friends, but between you and me I was wearing myself OUT! Every day I was running a marathon, trying to be that woman who had it all together, but I was slowly losing myself in the process.

Just as I was slipping into a seriously low point, God gently reminded me of my passion for design and I sat at my desk one day and began creating illustrations of women who were simply taking a moment to savor life. Through art, I was recovering and rediscovering J’Nae.

As my desk filled up with illustrations, I started sharing pieces on social media and interest quickly grew. This was the start of Cheriss & Company … and the beginning of my slower, richer purpose-filled life.

Life isn't slowing down anytime soon, and that's exactly why I’m inspired to create designs that not only elevate your space and your spirit, but also remind you to embrace your journey -- and the people around you -- and live life at YOUR own pace.

I ab-so-lute-ly love creating for everyday extraordinary women and I hope that always shines through!
