Jess Pritchard is a self taught, award winning artist from the UK. From a young age she has had a passion for both art and the natural world which were fuelled by holidays in the beautiful Lake District with regular trips to the Derwent Pencil Museum.
Jess specialises in creating realistic wildlife artworks using both graphite and coloured pencils. She has exhibited her work up and down the UK and has collectors all over the world from as far as Australia. Through her art, she hopes to bring the beauty of the natural world to the forefront of peoples minds and how essential it is to preserve it.
After gaining a University degree and a short career in Graphic Design, Jess realised this wasn’t the path for her so in 2016 dusted off the pencils and began her professional career. Since then she has won multiple awards such as the Derwent Pencil Award at the Wildlife Art Society International exhibition and Best In Show at the UK Coloured Pencil Society Keswick exhibition held at the Derwent Pencil Museum.
