About Me: Hi! I’m Jessica. I’m primarily an illustrator, and originally from the UK, but currently location independent. I work mainly with UK-based creative agencies, specialising in bold, contemporary drawings of people for editorial and corporate clients. I have a degree in Fine Art, completed in 2012. After a brief stint as a kickboxing instructor, I fell in love with Adobe Illustrator, jumped headfirst into full time freelancing and have been loving my job ever since! I’m passionate about travelling, and have visited over a dozen countries in the past couple of years – most notably spending a month in New York illustrating urban myths as the result of a successful kickstarter campaign.

Shortly after graduating I was contracted by Pure Web, a US based web development agency, to create some artwork for their clients. Since then I’ve risen through the ranks and currently act as their Creative Director, on an as-needed basis (commuting via Skype). My role is very varied, and covers everything from portraiture to web design.
I started freelancing during university and went full time in 2012. Since then I’ve worked with some fantastic clients, including Unilever and InterContinental Hotels Group - I love my job!
