Jess Pritchard

Jess is a self taught, multi-award winning pencil artist and Derwent Art brand ambassador from the UK. At a young age she had a passion for both art and wildlife so naturally combined the two and would often spend time sketching wildlife even at the age of 8 years old.

Years later after studying Graphic Communication at University and a short career in Graphic Design, she realised that path wasn’t for her so dusted off the pencils and began her full-time artistic career in 2015.

Jess favours the pencil to create all her pieces as it allows her to add in the small details that other mediums may struggle to accomplish. Most importantly, she loves to capture the the wildlife and animals at home and abroad to bring the beauty and magnitude of the outside world straight into the home.

There is nothing better than waking up in the morning, sitting at the drawing board and creating something new that did not exist yesterday.
