Jenny Robins is an illustrator known for her portrait work and obsession with birds. Originally from a small village in Sussex, she studied Illustration at Southampton Solent University where she honed her strong immediate style, and now juggles a role as a part time teacher of Art with freelance illustration.
Her work uses a mix of media but is based firmly in drawing and watercolour painting, usually with a healthy dash of collage thrown in. She is an avid live sketcher and echoes of this can be seen in her illustration. Always with a dozen projects on the back and front burners, she is currently drawing all of her facebook friends in alphabetical order, drawing wisdom from live television, producing a series of collaged alternative greetings cards, live drawing burlesque shows, designing wedding stationary for stylish couples, obsessively photographing trees, writing a graphic novel and still producing the odd fashion illustration or article for Amelia’s Magazine.
Jenny has exhibited at ‘Two Magpies Find’ exhibition in Windsor, and at Webbs Road Fine Art gallery in Clapham as well as numerous arts festivals, fairs and markets where she has facilitated workshops as well as exhibiting and selling her work. She has designed T-shirt graphics for TopMan, contributed political illustrations to Epolitix and illustrated a children’s book for Driver Dan’s Story Train
Her work has been featured in:
Computer Arts Magazine
Jumble and Pearls
Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration
and numerous others
