Jenny makes bespoke prints that combine watercolour and hand drawn birds and animals with vintage maps or found and photographed imagery.
She graduated from Edinburgh University and College of Art in 2002 with an MA in Fine Art. After working in the arts and mental health, she moved to London and in 2009 she completed an MA in Illustration at Camberwell of College of Art. Since then she has worked as a freelance illustrator and artist. Her bird prints are sold through a number of small galleries and private commission both nationally and internationally, and have featured in IKEA's Olunda collection.
Jenny's work combines watercolour and hand drawn birds and animals with vintage maps or found and photographed imagery. She mostly draw British birds to fit with Ordnance Survey maps from the 1920s - early 1960s. Starting with the map, Jenny uses wildlife local to the area shown in it.
“I use the contours of the map to inspire the image. I love the layers of meaning – either personal or more universal - that I can create with different combinations of imagery.”
