My name is Lena Jessie, and I am the creative soul behind Artisan Bread & More and the Bread Stamps.

Who…

I am a mother, a wife, a baking enthusiast, and a hopelessly entrepreneurial soul!

As a Grandchild of Volga Germans born in the Soviet Union, I moved to Germany when I was 9, remaining there for 20 years before moving to the US in 2009. I now live in beautiful Michigan but before that, I spent a few years in Texas and Georgia.

Why…

Baking my own German Breads and Rolls for a while, I found that the market for Bread Stamp Patterns was severely lacking so I decided to solve that problem by designing my own. I’m always up for a challenge, I see innovation and problem-solving as my fortes!

My first stamp design, the “Snowflake,” was a big Christmas hit with all my loved ones, and seeing the excellent response they drew, I decided to start selling my stamps online.

I’m frequently adding new Bread Stamp designs and recipes to this website, so feel free to stop by more often or sign up for updates via email. If you have a specific Bread Stamp in mind and think I could be of any help to you, don’t hesitate and get in touch with me at any time: lena@artisanbreadandmore.com

Thanks!

Lena
