Jen is an artist & illustrator based in Northern California. She is a trained natural science illustrator whose body of work is undergoing constant evolution. Inspired by anything from the dawn chorus of birds in the springtime, to patterns left in the dirt by rainwater, her work is influenced and inspired by the natural world, how we as humans relate to it, and how nature impacts the way we relate to each other.
When not working, she can be found in her kitchen baking up something sweet, taking cross country road trips with her dog, or at home planning her next big project.
