JENNIFER N. R. SMITH

is an award winning illustrator and visual artist based in Bristol. Her work has a focus on drawing as an academic inter-disciplinary tradition.  

Graduating from Camberwell College of Arts, UAL in 2015, Jennifer received a first class Bachelor's degree in Fine Art Drawing. At this time she co-founded Artist Collective 'Perhaps?', and began widening her practice as both a fine artist and an illustrator. 

She is now studying for a postgraduate qualification in Medical Art with the Medical Artists' Education Trust, based in London, and has student membership with the Medical Artists Association. She particularly enjoys making conceptual work for science journalism, and has worked with clients such as Penguin Random House, Lenny Letter, and First Look Media.
