Her clients also include Time.com, NY Times.com, California Watch, Oakland Local, Asian Art Museum, KQED, and local business companies and artists. In her work with LRP, Jenny loves that she can create a visual record of creative works not only for documentation but also for the clients to use for their grants and fundraising needs.
