Hiya, I'm Jess!
I'm an illustrator foremost, but also a designer, animator, Japanophile, hoarder of memes and a mother of 4 rats and a cat (yes, it is an interesting combination).
Ever since I was a child and first learned what the ‘illustrated by…’ on the front of my picture books meant, I have wanted to be an illustrator. Creating imagery and telling stories that can inspire and spread joy and positivity is my aspiration for my illustrations.
The themes of mental health and wellness are often explored in my work. With a psychologist as a mother, friends struggling with their mental health and my own adversities, the theme is quite prevalent and important in my life.
In 2016 I received a Creative Conscience award for my animation about the dangers of overlooking mental health.
Feel free to get in touch, I'd love to work with you!
