Jenny Reynish  lives and works near Colchester in Essex, in the UK. She works as a freelance illustrator, having produced illustrations for various publishers of books and magazines in the UK and USA, as well as card designs.

Much of the inspiration for her work is drawn from things seen and experienced while travelling; as well as from the imagination. She enjoys incorporating elements of ethnic and folk art, and details inspired by those in Persian carpets and woodcarvings, in addition to imagery from nature, cities and buildings. Fish, birds, elephants and angels appear as recurring motifs.

She uses a variety of media, including oil, watercolour, egg tempera and acrylic.
