Jen has been drawing and dreaming up new stories ever since she was old enough to use a pencil (and a stapler to staple the pages of her books together).
After 5 years working as an Art Buyer for Oxford University Press, she decided that being an illustrator was the life for her. Seeing beautiful artist portfolios every day rekindled her passion for character design, textures and colour.
Based in Hertfordshire, Jen is half Japanese and loves nothing more than going to Tokyo and exploring the city. She enjoys the quirkiness of Japanese cartoon characters and draws inspiration from the simplicity of traditional Japanese design.
