Jenni Saville Eames

Jenni Saville Eames is a Utah native who received her BFA in Art Education from the University of Utah.  She has been teaching Art at Juan Diego Catholic High School since 2008. 

When she’s not winning cupcake baking championships, she’s busy being a helicopter mom to two kids and her tiny pup.  She’s a strong, sensitive, independent woman who would never win a spelling bee. While she loves and respects nature, she never wants to be in it enough to require sunscreen, bug spray, or to provoke an asthma attack.  She’s much more at home indoors, close to her comfy bed and bar cart, brainstorming ideas for her next great artistic endeavor. 

“Like most artists, I’m starved for attention, but I don’t know how to sing, dance, or play sports.  This is all I’ve got.  And, like most artists, I love myself and I hate myself, but this struggle inspires me to create interesting art.”
