Chloe I Chief Hype Woman

 I’m a city girl born & raised in San Francisco, who married a boy she met in preschool (ask me more and I’ll tell you all about it). We have a beautiful son named Alonzo Barack, a one-eyed cat named Isabel and oh yeah, we run this fabulous business together!  

I started Chloe Jackman Studios over 15 years ago and way back when I’m not sure I ever imagined it would be this epic.  It’s beautiful and I am endlessly grateful.  We are a team or as I prefer to say a family of diverse, sarcastic, caring, thoughtful, talented, funny humans and we can’t wait to make magic with you!  ✨

She’s passionate about cultivating empathy & authenticity, engaging with her community, and laughing her face off with friends. When she’s not working, you can find her getting her hands dirty at the pottery studio, mountain biking in the redwoods, jamming to a rock song, or crushing her enemies in Mario Kart.  Her husband is convinced she can communicate telepathically with dogs.
