Jenny Løvlie is an illustrator and bird enthusiast from Ekkeroy in northern Norway. Being the first child born in the village in 12 years left a lot of time for her to develop her imagination and drawing skills. Her style is bright and colourful with lots of texture, plants and animals. She draws a lot of inspiration from the Arctic landscape, flora and fauna. She is the illustrator of the Waterstones Prize-winner The Girls. Jenny has a BA in illustration from Kingston University and is now based in Cardiff.
