Man spürt förmlich wie sehr Jenni liebt was sie tut. Selbst auf dem Umschlag, in dem das Bild steckte, hat sie uns eine kleine Botschaft gezeichnet. Thanks a lot, Jenni!

Adorable tea towel! Its dog-themed print will bring a smile to your face every time you use it.

Illustrated prints and textiles

I am an illustrator and picture book maker, working from my studio in Hackney, London UK.

My books have been translated into over a dozen languages. In 2015 I won Best Emerging Talent (Illustrator) at the Junior Design Awards. In 2016 I was made a Maurice Sendak Fellow and my book 'The Polar Bear' became one of the prestigious New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Books.

I aim to make my work entertaining, beautiful and funny. I love hidden depth both visually and narratively.

From time to time my illustrations expand from picture books into food illustration, editorial illustration, textile and fabric design, cards, ceramics and printmaking.

I work by hand using mixed media, and finish the artwork digitally. I am inspired by the Japanese aesthetic, interior design, music, nature, people-watching, cycle rides, travel, textures, textiles, architecture, film, literature, food, photography and art exhibitions.

When not creating in my studio I love to cook with friends and family, and to go for long walks, cycles and adventures.

It is of great importance to me that all my work is of the highest quality and that it reaches you that way.
