The Talent Jennifer Tibbles Biography

Jennifer Tibbles is a children’s book illustrator represented by Advocate art, illustration agency.

Jennifer takes inspiration from real life, the small and curious things you see children do when they are playing. She also collects children’s books by illustrators that she admires; looking at their work always drives her to work harder. Rebecca Dautremer, Maurice Sendak and Mini Grey are her favourites.

Her own artwork is in a more realistic style but sometimes with an imaginary setting, using bright colours to make things look a little magical. Jennifer always works in watercolour and coloured pencil, sketching out the idea and then working over the top.

In her spare time Jennifer likes to make her own clothes, replicating the current catwalk trends. She also loves day trips to Paris and visiting the Hampton court flower show.
