Born in England into a creative family, Jennifer Copley-May has been passionate about all forms of art since early childhood. As an adult she studied botanic illustration and continued to develop her artistic talents in several other areas: portraiture, landscapes, animal portraits and more recently, abstracts, graphics and illustrative work.
Jennifer is at ease working in most media: pencil, ink, watercolours, oil, clay and even embroidery. She has also created large scale works for swimming pools (mosaics) and more recently a series of back drops for a dance hall musical. Jennifer has always encouraged people of all ages who think they are not creative and has in the past run courses for children, beginners and accomplished artists, focusing on various aspects of the arts. For her, creativity touches everyone and is within everyone's grasp.
Jennifer is a member of The Association of Ilustrators. Her illustrative work has been commissioned by theatre companies, gardening societies, exhibition and event promoters, card printers and publishers. Her work for publishers has included the Blackbird Digital Books' logo and our very own collection of multi-coloured armadillos, as well as the cover drawing for David Selzer's Poetry: A Jar of Sticklebacks by David Selzer.
