The Doodle Academy Founder
My name is Alena Rae Jennings. I am an artist, teacher, and owner of The Doodle Academy. The desire to create and learn has consumed my thoughts and dreams for years. This passion and support from the community lead to the creation of The Doodle Academy. For anyone that has been inside The Doodle you know, it's a mix of mediums and passions. This eclectic home of art is a representation of my dreams, interests, and passion for supporting our local art community.
I received my Bachelors of Arts from USAO in Chickasha, OK in 2013 and moved to Ponca City in 2016. Since moving here I have been honored to serve on a couple non-profit boards here in our community. In serving my community i have earned a love for the citizens and a greater understanding of the community needs. This knowledge has fueled The Doodle and the services provided.
As of 2021, I became the crazy mom of two little twins and they keep me wildly active. While I have been home with the twins this past year my desire to learn and create has become overwhelming. With this new focus I'm shifting my time from volunteering hours at The Doodle and instead creating a new body of work. The two new collections I'm working on for 2022 will be a quilt coat series and a pottery series. I will also be sprinkling in other fun mediums such as Painting, Drawing, Glass fusing, and whatever I can get my hands into next.
I will be using Facebook, Instagram, and Patreon to keep my supporters in the loop about what is going on with my current projects. When you support me as a patron you will receive access to content, classes, and art. Plus be the first to see all the new art I'm creating and putting up for sale. So buckle in, and get ready to keep up with my bubbly creative antics.
