About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Songmaker & Artist
Location Nashville, TN, United States
Introduction Thank you so very much for stopping by. I am Jeni Hankins. Beyond songwriting and performing, I have a whole bunch of passions like sewing, reading 19th century British novels, baking (biscuits especially), and watching films. I am a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe, Simone Weil, and Anna Maria Horner. I am very cheerful except when I am hungry and then it would be a good idea to make me a little salad and wait to ask me any important questions. I love animals, especially elephants. I would like to spend time with an elephant one day and would doubly delighted if that happened to take place in India. I am grateful to be here and my mission is kindness wherever possible.
