Jenny Miriam

I'm an illustator based in the wonderfully creative city of Bristol, UK. Growing up in the mysterious and magical county of Cornwall, I found true joy and artistic inspiration in the nature that surrounded me. From this inspired beginning, I went on to study art and design, graduating with a BA (Hons) in Graphic & Packaging design, and then an MA in Multimedia.
