Jess works as an illustrator and designer, in a digital vector style that often makes use of bright colours, high contrast, sharp lines and texture. After studying fine arts and arts management at Sydney College of the Arts and Macquarie University, she worked in freelance graphic design and ran a handmade jewellery business for a number of years, then switched her focus entirely to design and illustration. Jess completed a Certificate IV in Design through TAFE (Design Centre Centre) in 2015, and a Diploma of Illustration (Graphic Design) in 2016. In 2017 she continued her studies with an Advanced Diploma of Illustration (Graphic Design), and graduated with the 2017 Achievement Award for Outstanding Performance in the course.
Since graduating, Jess has worked as an independent illustration and design contractor for global management consultancy firm McKinsey & Company, and marketing firm Cherry Media Group, along with various freelance projects. She is available for freelance and contract work in both illustration and graphic design, and is particularly interested in editorial illustration opportunities.
