Jenna Rae Tooley is a production designer and fine artist based in Los Angeles & New York City.
Tooley started her artistic career in the fine arts world, picking up oil painting at a young age, and showcasing her work internationally. Her formal education began in Italy where she studied traditional/classical painting, she then went on to receive a Bachelors of Fines Arts degree in painting from the Savannah College of Art & Design. Tooley has collected numerous honors for her fine arts work, including a grant from the prestigious Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation. She continues her studio practice (& first love) in between film sets.
Tooley comes from an film-centric family, her father a visual effects artist, and mother a production manager. Yet growing up it never dawned on her to explore the world of filmmaking until she walked onto her first film set in college. She fell in love with the craft of filmmaking instantly. The ingenuity, and imaginative nature of production design sparked a fire in her that she knows will last a lifetime. Tooley has been a story teller in one medium or another her entire life, but like many, feels film has a unique way of conveying narratives and capturing the human experience. And production design specifically is an art that not only replicates the stories woven within the details of the our world, but fabricated new ones.
Which she finds incredibly exciting.
Tooley is currently represented by Zero Gravity Management
