Jennie was born in London and spent her formative years in Malaysia, returning to the UK at the age of nine. She fell in love with the Norfolk countryside and feels a deep connection with nature and conservation, which heavily influences her work.

Jennie studied Fine Art at The Surrey Institute of Art & Design, alongside illustration courses at Central St Martins.

She mainly works digitally but enjoys making her own paintbrushes and textures, using any natural materials such as leaves, bark, flowers, and anything else she may find while out walking. She has a love of watercolour and indian inks which make wonderful splatters and splodges!

Jennie’s clients include Bloomsbury, Little Tiger Press, Harrods, Magination Press, Baker Publishing, Capstone Publishing, Sleeping Bear Press, Lantana Press and Eden Cooper.

Jennie lives in Surrey with her two daughters and a mischievous marmalade cat.
