Jessica is a Bath-based artist specialising in illustration. She creates playful, bold, and colourful designs inspired by the natural world, people, and patterns. Since graduating from Falmouth University in 2016, Jessica has worked with big-name brands, including Kate Spade, Adobe, and Canva.

We launched our first range of cards with Jess in September, and with another collection on its way, we thought it was about time we got to know her a little better!

Where are you based, and what do you like most about it there?

I'm currently based in Bath, UK. It's so beautiful here. The buildings, old signs and green parks are so lovely, and I often have to pinch myself that I get to live here!

What was your favourite subject at school/ college?

Art has always been my favourite subject; from day one, it was the subject I put the most effort and time into.

What was your dream job as a kid?

I actually always wanted to be a vet. I love animals so much, and if I had to do any other job, I would still choose to be a vet now!

What are your top 5 songs for when you're working?

I have a Spotify playlist called 'In my studio' and these are 5 of the songs I have on there:

Where is your favourite place to buy art supplies?

My go-to places are Jackson's Art and Cult Pens.

Do you prefer creating with your hands or digitally?

I love and use both in my everyday practice, but you can't beat painting traditionally.

What's your favourite item in your home?

I love all of our artwork. We have a big gallery wall in our living room, and I love collecting new pieces for it!

Favourite film/TV series?

Ooh, this is a tough one! But I do love Stranger Things and Harry Potter (alllll of them!).

Dream collab?

I would LOVE to work with Anthropologie on a homeware collection!

Any fun party tricks or unusual talents?

I can do the splits!

Favourite artist?

I actually couldn't pick one, but if we're going for the big guns, I'd say David Hockney.

How would you spend your ideal weekend?

Some of my favourite weekends have been spent in Cornwall, on the beach, swimming and just being by the sea.

Last place you went on holiday?


Cats or dogs?

Oh, dogs 100%!

Three items you never leave the house without?

My phone, some headphones, a sketchbook / notebook.

Any pet peeves?

No manners! There's no excuse for rudeness!

What inspires you most?

Nature, people and places.

Top three dinner party guests, dead or alive?

Banksy, David Attenborough, Walt Disney

The best piece of advice for aspiring artists?

Starting is the hardest part, so when you get over that first hurdle it will feel a lot less scary. So just start, don't worry about your work being perfect, it takes time and thats what makes it so special.

What is your favourite card from your collection?

I love the 'Wishing you a Beautiful Birthday' one!
