Jenna Rae Tooley is a production designer and fine artist based in Los Angeles & New York City. She is a story driven designer, drawn to tales both whimsically magical, and deeply human.

Tooley started her artistic career in fine arts, picking up oil painting at that age of 7, and dedicating her adolescence to developing a strong artistic direction & style. Tooley exhibited her work broadly both nationally & internationally before starting her formal education 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. Throughout her career, 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 productions.

As for her love of film… Tooley comes from a 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 undergrad. Tooley instantly fell in love with the artistry of filmmaking, the ingenuity of craftsmanship and the evocative power of of visual storytelling. Production design specifically is an art that not only seeks to replicate the stories woven within the details of the our world, but fabricate new ones.
Which is an exploration Tooley finds incredibly exciting.

Tooley is currently represented by Zero Gravity Management
