Hi! I am Jen, a freelance Illustrator and Designer living in sunny England on the Bedfordshire/Buckinghamshire border surrounded by beautiful forest. I love creating quirky characters and bringing their wonderful personalities to life. I have a passion for inclusiveness and am a strong advocate for representation in children’s books. I love the idea that we can change the world by the books we read and create and am excited about what amazing projects are out there waiting for me. I am a volunteer branch co-ordinator for Reach Charity – a charity that supports children with upper limb differences. This charity is extremely close to my heart and I strive to play a prominent part in improving the positive representation for people with physical differences on TV, in picture books and in the media.
