It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.
— Sir David Attenborough

BIO

Hello! I'm Jen. I've been interested in wildlife, especially marine species, since I can remember; I grew up on the beautiful coast of South Devon, England and have spent most of my life drawing animals, writing about animals, and talking about animals. After earning a bachelor's degree in Media Arts at Plymouth University I pursued a career that blended my love of communication with my passion for wildlife, and became a presenter at the UK's only coastal zoo.

In the years that followed I moved to the southeastern United States and continued working as an environmental educator and training specialist at one of the world's largest aquariums. In late 2016 I ventured into the world of UX design and now use my skills, empathy, and advocacy to create meaningful experiences with technology.

Through my art I hope to spark your curiosity about the animals with which we live. Nature is a constant inspiration for me and I love to share my favourite species with others; I encourage you to get to know your wild neighbours too.
