Hi, My Name Is...


Hubertienne a.k.a Huub or Jen, interior designer & photographer and I live on the little sunny island called Curacao (for the ones googling it, it's between Aruba and Bonaire. Part of the ABC islands). Was born and raised in the Netherlands and sometimes I really miss the big city life.That's why I try to travel as much as possible. In 2004, after my studies I wanted a break from student life and came to island to my family, mainly to get my driving license. I applied for a job, found love and stayed for now 13 years. After 12 years my life got a whole new meaning. I quit my job after 11 years in 2015 and in 2017 I'm on my own again. Now, at the age of 35, I'm single again and having a great interior design, styling and photography business.

Where did the name JenPen come from?! Well, a very good friend of mine gave me that name. Simple as that. My mother's family always called me Jenny, as I think my grandmother gave it to me because my real name was to difficult for her to pronounce or she just wanted to call me Jenny. Never really figured that one out. Anyways....when I was 14-15 years old I became friends with this awesome chick and she also picked up the name Jenny as she slowly met my family. So she started to shorten it, by calling me Jen and when I went back to the Netherlands, we kept contact and when she called me up or wrote me a letter (yes, the good old letter times) she called me JenPen. And I liked it, so it stuck for when I was looking for a creative and business name. Thanks Farah ;)

The blog began as a place for me to be creative at night, by searching tons of cool stuff about interior design & traveling. It now it a place where you can find inspiration about my travels and my own projects. I try to provide as much as possible of my own photography on my blog, giving it then a more personal and authentic content. The blog got nominated at the Amara Interior Blog Awards '16 and got into the top 5 of the Best International Interior Blog category.

I don't have a brick and mortar place to call my studio, but maybe one day I can have a place to welcome clients and host small events. JenPEN Creative Studio specializes  on interior design, styling & photography. After 11 years working at an architectural bureau, Studio Acht Caribbean Architects BV, I took the leap and starting on my own since 2015. See the services here.
