Meet the Designer
J’Nae is the passion-obsessed illustrator & designer behind Cheriss & Company, a brand on a mission to create feel-good, fabulous designs that celebrate and empower women and girls.
An alumna of Clark Atlanta University’s School of Business, J’Nae began her career working in Corporate America behind brands including TLC, HowStuffWorks and Science Channel. But for her, all roads would lead back to purpose and passion, and in 2011 she packed up her experiences collected along the way and returned to her roots: art and design. The urge to give something meaningful to the world coupled with an insatiable love for art, inspired her to establish a small collection of greeting cards under the name WarmRegards Gift Company.
Pulled by a stronger calling to speak to the hearts of everyday women, the vision ultimately outgrew greeting cards and, in late 2014, was officially relaunched as Cheriss & Company. Within months, FROGIRLS, J’Nae’s first collection of art prints and stationery, superseded her wildest expectations.
Today, J’Nae’s colorful and unmistakably classy designs continue to strike a chord with women who not only love perfect reflection of themselves and the beautiful women in their lives, but believe in the power of meaningful art to transform lives.
