About Jennifer Hawkyard

Practically born with a pencil in my hand, some of my earliest memories were thinking - I don't want to go to school, I just want to draw pictures all day! I started my artistic career drawing horses obsessively and then began to branch out into animal portraiture. Some of my earliest commissions were pet portraits and people portraits. 
After growing up in Northern England I decided to study Art & Design in Canada to allow me to spend more time there than the tourist visa allowed. What started out as a 1 year Art & Design Fundamentals course, ended with a further 3 years in college for Graphic Design and then being immediately hired as a Graphic Designer for a local Web Design company. In Graphic Design I found a career that allowed me to be creative but also paid me to be creative - win win! I worked my way up the career ladder and a few years later made it to Art Director managing a team of 4 talented designers and working with a 30 strong team of multi-talented people in a fast paced industry.
7 years on and 11 years since my adventure to Canada I have decided to return home. I  continued to explore my art alongside work but increasingly found that I was becoming frustrated by not being able to spend the time I wanted on furthering my artistic career. I’ve returned to England and now Wales to be closer to family and discover this stunning part of the country.
My artwork is multi-faceted without focusing on a particular genre or medium. I work both in digital and traditional mediums enjoying and exploring the flexibility they offer. My work is whimsical and colourful, exploring fantasy creatures and whimsical beings.
