About me

Hello! My name is Jessica Hartshorn and I'm based in Rugby, Warwickshire, UK. 
I work as a professional illustrator and create a range of vibrantly and colourful artworks bringing stories  to life.

 

After gaining my degree in Visual Communication, Illustration at Loughborough University in 2001, I worked as a freelance illustrator for a year before changing direction, developing a career in the museums and gallery education sector for over a decade. Returning to illustration in 2018, my portfolio consists of a range of murals for cultural venues,  book and educational resource illustration and products. However I have predominately carved out a niche specialising in illustrations for museums and galleries. Using my background in the heritage sector I now create artwork and content for family trails, maps, interpretation and education resources.

 Through a playful and colourful style, my Illustrations focus very much narrative which is incorporated into the story telling of her illustrations. Using a mixture of acrylic, paint pens, work is sketched, and then painted using layers of colour and finally adding detail.

I also love painting animals and nature and this tend to  shine through in my products.
