Born in London, Jess is an Illustrator and freelance Workshop Facilitator based in the South East. After completing her illustration degree, she realised her intrigue was always based on a love of culture and people. Jess now works across different areas of illustration, animation and design, with her goal being to create moments of relatability, narrative, connection and joy.
She specialises in making work based on cultures, narrative and social commentary; which have previously culminated in commissions for album covers, books, murals and animations.
She has worked on commissions for VANS x MoMA, critically acclaimed platform It's Freezing in LA! and illustrated gal-dem's book 'I Will Not Be Erased which was Nominated for the 2020 Waterstones Children's Book prize.
