Hi, I'm Jess! I'm an Illustrator with a background as Graphic Designer, based in London. 
I worked as Graphic Designer for applications and website for about 8 years, never missing the opportunity to express my own creativity through digital illustrations, mascots and emojis.
I had the pleasure to work as UI/UX and graphic designer with 
Memrise, Zenly, Mush and Docomo Digital.

In 2018 I became a freelancer to focus on what I love most: illustration.
Soon I discovered a great interest in
children's books and I was intrigued by the communicative power that hides behind the images. In April 2019 I started to work on my first commissioned children's books. I've collaborated with Caramel Publishing, Sassi Junior and Gruppo Editoriale Raffaello.
I'm keen to explore new styles and improve my storytelling skills, so in September 2019 I started the Children's Book Illustration MA at the Cambridge School of Art which I just concluded.
Throughout the Masters, I discovered a deep passion for storytelling and I'm keen to keep writing and illustrating my own stories for children and adults.
Along with books, I love creating illustrated merchandise that can bring colour and fun into people's everyday life. Since late 2020 I run the small business Jess Was Here.
